Our Goals

Our work to achieve a vision for change is grounded in the following goals:

1. Collaboration becomes the new way of doing business: Providers make strategic, intentional, and systemic collaboration the standard approach for addressing consumer and community challenges.

2. Momentum grows in size and scope: The number of people, organizations, and sectors actively engaged in the Initiative increases, as do the activities the Initiative undertakes.

3. Knowledge deepens: Providers and others grow a deeper understanding of community needs and consumer perspectives through more regular and meaningful engagement practices.

4. Data and evidence are used routinely: Quantitative and qualitative data is gathered and evaluated by diverse perspectives to inform, evaluate, and plan.

5. Adaptive systems leaders are developed across the safety net: Systems leadership is employed at all levels within safety net organizations and across the system.

Our progress on achieving these goals is currently being evaluated by Equal Measure, a nonprofit evaluation and consulting firm. Their evaluation report covering our work from 2017 through 2019 will be released in Spring 2020.
