Collective Impact Efforts Evolve, Guided by Evidence2Success

A new report from the Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Center examines how Rhode Island’s Providence Children and Youth Cabinet (CYC) has changed since adopting the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Evidence2Success® framework on funding proven programs seven years ago.

During this time frame, CYC — a coalition of organizations, systems, residents and youth organized around community-generated priorities — transitioned from coordinating services to serving as an independent intermediary for many organizations providing evidence-based programs.

CYC’s evolution has generated valuable insights — shared in the report — that can help other collective impact programs pursue sustainability and fiscal independence.

In this case study, you’ll learn:

  1. An overview of the Providence Children and Youth Cabinet
  2. The five components of collective impact
  3. Steps that collective impact efforts can take to achieve fiscal independence and sustainability
  4. Common hurdles in implementing a collective impact effort.
