Collective Impact Efforts Evolve, Guided by Evidence2Success
September 5, 2019
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:
- An overview of the Providence Children and Youth Cabinet
- The five components of collective impact
- Steps that collective impact efforts can take to achieve fiscal independence and sustainability
- Common hurdles in implementing a collective impact effort.
