Collective Impact

circle-arrowCollective Impact is a framework to promote social change with cross-sector collaborations. Partners work together to promote a common agenda, shared measurement, mutually reinforcing activities, continuous communication, with support from a backbone organization to increase the impact of their efforts to address complex issues (Kania & Kramer, 2011).

The Tri-Valley Anti-Poverty Collaboration utilizes partnerships with government, non-profit organizations, faith-based organizations, schools, philanthropic organizations, businesses, and citizens.

Examples of TVAPC Collaborations include:

  • TVAPC / EBHO / All In collaborated to provide voter information forums.
  • TVAPC promoted the 2016 Livermore Health Fair.
  • TVAPC / CAPE Head Start collaborated to connect community Listening Sessions.
  • Asbury United Methodist Church is providing Open Heart Kitchen a temporary meal service location for two additional days per week.
  • Stanford/Valley Care is providing Open Heart Kitchen a temporary food storage and meal assembly location.
