A Collective Impact
In keeping with our dedication to a collective impact model, both of our new centers will be co-located with highly effective nonprofits with expertise in critical issues which our families face. In Ward 8, we share our headquarters with Community of Hope, while in Ward 1 we will be located within a Jubilee Housing facility, expanding our ability to offer families access to a wide range of supports. In addition to these exciting new partnerships, we have also been collaborating with the Capital Area Food Bank since 2015 on our Joyful Food Markets, a network of no-cost markets that bring access to healthy food to families east of the Anacostia River. Finally, we are working with Georgetown University, across all our programs, to improve our methodology, measure impact, and expand our reach.
