This National Summit is happening because many people, organizations, and institutions are eager to connect, learn from each other, and co-create lasting solutions. As these caregivers collectively align and mobilize their unique strengths, the results are innovative best practices that hold great promise and hope. These include the following:
All children, adults, and families gain greater access to constantly updated information and resources that can help them experience a better quality of life and brighter future.
All agencies gain greater peace of mind knowing that their unique mission is part and parcel of a more coordinated and comprehensive (holistic) solution for transforming people's lives.
All funders (donors, foundations, businesses, and others) gain greater assurance that the right resources, get into the right hands, at the right time.
All civic stakeholders gain greater "community intelligence" through knowledge-sharing and collective wisdom — paving the way for cross-sector collaboration and lasting solutions.
