Partnership for Strong Communities serves as a hub of knowledge and collaboration. We organize educational events that inspire, inform, and foster meaningful dialogues. We are dynamic conveners that create spaces for shared insights and collective action toward positive change in Connecticut’s housing landscape

Collective Impact is the commitment of a group of actors from different sectors to a common agenda for solving a specific social problem, using a structured form of collaboration. We lead and participate in Collective Impact efforts to unite cross-sector partners and drive changes in policies, systems, funding, and relationships necessary to achieve our vision. Together we use our expertise, influence, leadership, passion, and commitment to collectively drive systems change.
