Cultural Broker Program
How We Started
Who We Are
Cultural Broker Program was started by an organization called "Project Save Our
Children". Project Save Our Children was formed in May of 2010. This San Diego
community grassroots organization began because of the racial
disproportionality of African American children in the Child Welfare
Project Save Our Children (PSOC) recognizes that there must be
multiple targeted efforts to connect children with permanent and healthy
families such as: birth families, kinship families, extended family or adoptive
families. Project Save Our Children developed the Cultural Broker Program as
one way to address the disparity and disproportionality that exist in the
African American children and families of San Diego.
The Cultural Broker
Program will focus on reducing the number of African
American children in the Child Welfare

Cultural Brokers are members of the community that advocate as well as navigate for the families of the same culture. We also have extensive knowledge base of the families cultural background.
Cultural Brokers work with families who are at risk of becoming involved with the Child Welfare System (CWS) also known as Child Protective Services (CPS). The Cultural Brokers work to increase the quality of the relationship between the Child Welfare System and the families it serves in order to create better outcomes for the African American families.
The Cultural Broker Program is built on the unique strengths and talents of people within the community which include: neighborhoods, religious congregations, cultural and ethnic groups and people facing common barriers.
