Getting to Scale: The Elusive Goal
This paper highlights the Magnolia Place Community Initiative and how it uses the Strengthening Families Protective Factors Framework to galvanize community residents, organizational partners and existing initiatives to create a local response to improve a community.
This initiative improves the community by creating a safe and supportive environment for the neighborhood’s children. By contributing to a culture that will support and sustain health and well-being for everyone, the initiative puts the entire community behind one “big idea.” This idea brings together people’s ideas, concepts and tools – and fosters the idea of working together in innovative ways.
This report gets to the heart of what it will take to ultimately get beyond the elusive goal of “getting to scale” and actually achieving it.
