We are happy to share five new case studies featuring a subset of the collaboratives studied by the 2018 research study “When Collective Impact Has an Impact,” conducted by ORS Impact and Spark Policy Institute. Each case study takes a deeper look at how the conditions of collective impact contributed to achieving population change.
These initiatives have engaged in city, county, and state-wide collaboration over the past two decades. They have worked to address complex issues like homelessness, prescription drug abuse prevention, juvenile justice, and youth well-being. We invite you to check out how they have established organizational structures, adopted principles of collective impact, and developed strategies toward early and systems changes.
