Imagine what could be accomplished by the helping hands of multiple nonprofits united by a shared vision. That’s what the Lodestar Foundation did, and as a result, developed the Collaboration Prize, a national award designed to identify and showcase models of innovative collaboration among nonprofit organizations.

There are eight finalists for this year’s prize, and among them is Westside Infant-Family Network (WIN), a Culver City-based collaboration that includes Westside Children’s Center, Venice Family Clinic and St. Joseph Center. The triumvirate was designed to help stabilize and strengthen families with children (prenatal through age 3) by providing culturally sensitive, bilingual mental health care regardless of ability to pay, together with a host of connections to community resources.

Of the more than 800 applicants consisting of a collaboration of two or more nonprofits, WIN is the only one from California.
