The SUN Service System is a unique county–city–school partnership designed to align resources and promote success for all children, youth, and families in Multnomah County, Oregon. SUN is an anti-poverty and prevention effort, which connects educational, social, health, and other services under one umbrella. SUN leaders view education not as an end itself, but as a pathway to positive development and self-sufficiency. As part of this vision, they see schools as community centers that play a vital role in the health and success of both individual youth and the community as a whole.
