Coalition Building & Collaboration

Become Chart-01

Become helps organizations and community members create a shared vision for their community, plan to achieve that vision, and implement. For example, the I AM ABLE Center for Family Development has developed a coalition, the Trauma Response and Intervention Movement (TR4IM), that brings together organizations, parents and youth in North Lawndale to address and prevent trauma. We’re helping them with:

  • Program evaluation, helping to ground their work in evidence-based practice in trauma and violence prevention
  • Engaging more partners, such as a local high school, a nonprofit that assists low-income families with financial planning, and an organization assisting nonprofits in retirement planning.
