Foundations seek to create positive community impact in their roles as communicators, connectors, conveners, catalysts, and funders. This vital work must be carried out in a complex and ever changing environment, and it requires cross-sector partnerships with organizations that have different resources, cultures, practices and missions.
The need for community partnership has been highlighted by the pandemic, and crystalized in the growing realization that creating health equity is everyone’s responsibility. It is now clear that the challenges facing our communities cannot be solved except through creative collaboration with the needs of community members at the center of the work.
At CHS we specialize in helping foundations solve the collaboration challenge by developing and supporting community collaboratives that bring community organizations together for learning and action. We have deep experience in helping diverse organizations work together to build capacity and create collaborative solutions to community challenges. The results can be seen in stronger relationships, creative synergy, and positive community impact.
