The Child Poverty Collaborative

 

We aim to build and implement a community-driven, data-informed action plan. We are engaging directly with community members and community leaders to gather fresh ideas generated through conversation, reflection, and collaborative planning.

Our Steering Committee consists of more than 30 members, each selected to represent our diverse community. This group met for the first time in November 2015, and continues to meet monthly to provide insight and guidance.
