Community Partner Spotlight
Healthy Start understands it takes a collaborative effort to assist families in the community and we value our community partners. Please take a moment to read about one of our long-standing partners.
The 2020 Plan is a collective impact initiative to reduce the poverty rate by 30% by 2020 in South St. Petersburg (City of St. Petersburg), an area with the largest concentration of poverty in Pinellas County, Florida.
The key to reducing poverty is increasing employment income. The 2020 Plan is a backbone organization that offers a collective impact strategy for the community’s success toward the major areas of programming that are vital to accelerating poverty reduction, and the resultant impact in moving the poverty needle for a community that is the largest concentration of poverty in Pinellas County, Florida.
For collective impact initiatives, the backbone support is a critical component of the infrastructure that enables these collaborative, multi-sector efforts to advance systems-level change. It is also one of the most unique elements of collective impact, distinguishing the approach from several other forms of collaboration.
