The Coastside Collaborative is a group of government, non-profit, and community-based organizations that work together to address social and health related issues on the San Mateo County coast. Members of the Collaborative pull together during times of crisis to share their collective expertise, resources, and networks to support the residents of the Coastside and ensure the health, safety, and vitality of our shared community.

During the COVID-19 outbreak and current shelter-in-place order, the Collaborative has formed this Coalition to assist in providing relief and recovery to those most vulnerable, and to gather and distribute support and resources.
