New Report Highlights Opening Doors-CT/Reaching Home Process and Progress!

Building Movement Project

In August 2015, the Building Movement Project released a report, Coordinating Collaboration to End Homelessness: A Mid-Point Learning Assessment of the Reaching Home Campaign and Opening Doors-Connecticut. This report is the culmination of an 11-month process, commissioned by the Melville Charitable Trust, to understand the Reaching Home Campaign’s work to convene diverse partners across the state to end homelessness in Connecticut using the Opening Doors-CT framework.

A total of 185 individuals representing 120 organizations completed the survey. Findings suggest that the Campaign has strong internal structures and processes, clear purpose and goals, and energized and motivated stakeholders. Areas for improvement include amplifying communications, improving transparency, and expanding stakeholder engagement.

Partners in the Campaign are currently convening to discuss next steps to improve the efforts. We hope this report will be used across Connecticut and the nation to show how to create sustainable change through a collective impact model.
