We are a catalyst for measurable community transformation, leading to a better life for all through collective impact in education, financial stability and health.
Collaborative Strategy to Increase Community Impact- Target Outcomes
Education: o Children from at risk families arrive at kindergarten ready to be successful in school. o Intermediate and middle-school students (5th-8th grade) improve their health knowledge, develop communication and life skills and avoid specific risky behaviors, leading to safer schools and positive social environments that improve both educational and social outcomes. Financial Stability: o Low-wage workers with family incomes under 200% of the federal poverty level increase income, build savings and gain assets to improve financial stability. Health: o Low-wage workers with family incomes under 200% of the federal poverty level decrease risk factors for metabolic syndrome (obesity, heart disease and diabetes). o Low-wage workers with family incomes under 200% of the federal poverty level receive comprehensive health screening (mental health, substance use and somatic health) and are connected to an integrated health medical home.
Basic Needs: o Families experiencing a temporary disruption in their ability to provide for their basic needs resolve their immediate financial crisis and develop a holistic plan for household sustainability using personal and community resources
