Orange County Children's Leadership Alliance Partnership

"The Center for Community Partnerships, along with Dr. Michael Frumkin and Dr. Nancy Ellis, has brought a good deal of academic expertise to the Orange County Children's Leadership Alliance. With the input of their expertise in successfully working with community based groups, they bring a process and structure that assists in getting focus and attention for our community based agenda for children." -- Dick Batchelor, community leader and owner of Dick Batchelor Management Group, Inc.
