West Virginia University (WVU) Center for Excellence in Disabilities (CED) sought contractual support from Collective Impact to facilitate a strategic planning process for the organization in preparation for the 5-year competitive renewal that is due in February, 2017. The process culminated with the development of a plan that summarizes priority areas and identifies key partners and activities from the planning process to help guide the organization’s future direction. Ultimately, it will provide a “road map” or guide for the organization to intentionally move forward into the future and be better prepared for the competitive renewal.
Collective Impact used our signature Community Design Innovations model to work with the Lincoln County Early Childhood Collaborative to develop a comprehensive community-based strategic plan. The strategies identified in the plan aim to build the collaborative's capacity and strengthen the community infrastructure that supports the various early childhood resources and services available to families.

"Collective Impact collaborated with us in designing and leading a statewide training for the network of Family Resource Centers in West Virginia. Throughout the twists and turns of design and fulfillment of our 2-day training, we were fortunate to work with a team of consultants who were professional, client-focused, flexible, effective, interactive, strength-based, positive, and connected. All provided in an atmosphere of fun and with a mindfulness of varied learning styles. We left our meeting with a renewed energy of cohesiveness, coupled with action steps and concrete ideas to move forward. The success of our training would not have been possible without the insight and effectiveness of Collective Impact." ~ Genny Ferri, Community Partnership Coordinator, Prevent Child Abuse West Virginia - a project of TEAM For West Virginia Children, Inc., Huntington, WV
