Chilenski, S. M., & Chrisler, A. J. (2019). A road map to quality collective impact programming with fiscal independence: The Providence Children and Youth Cabinet story. University Park, PA: Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center, The Pennsylvania State University. 28 pp. Annie E. Casey Foundation Grant #212.0235, to PI Chilenski. Abstract: This report examines how Rhode Island’s Providence Children and Youth Cabinet (CYC) has changed since adopting the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Evidence2Success® framework seven years ago. During this time frame, CYC — a coalition of organizations, systems, residents and youth organized around community-generated priorities — transitioned from backbone organization to agile and independent intermediary. CYC’s evolution generated valuable insights — identified and explored in this report — that can help other collective impact programs pursue sustainability and fiscal independence.
