Tompkins County Collective Impact Initiatives

Collective Impact in Tompkins County is focused around the following four areas.

The Childhood Nutrition Collaborative works with the  community to promote the continuous improvement of all aspects of our local food systems. We aim to reduce the obstacles to making the healthy, nutritious food choices.

A group of over 70 community stakeholders who seek to ensure that all youth and their families are physically and emotionally healthy, active community members and on track for employment at a living wage.

 

MBK encourages candid dialogues around the country and a greater sense of responsibility among community leaders and young people to put all youth in a position to thrive, regardless of their race, gender, or socioeconomic status.

URO facilitates collective community work between private and public sectors to transform the culture and process of re-entry in Tompkins County and prevent recidivism.
