The Casey Foun­da­tion recent­ly host­ed a webi­nar for com­mu­ni­ties that are inter­est­ed in imple­ment­ing Evidence2Success, a frame­work that brings pub­lic sys­tem and res­i­dent lead­ers togeth­er to improve child well-being.

Pre­sen­ters shared infor­ma­tion about the RFP sub­mis­sion and selec­tion process, financ­ing strate­gies and oth­er core com­po­nents of the frame­work, includ­ing the tools and tech­ni­cal assis­tance select­ed sites will receive.

Evidence2Success pro­vides com­mu­ni­ties with infor­ma­tion about what will help youth stay on track, as well as tai­lored solu­tions to address young people’s needs and build on their strengths,” says Amoret­ta Mor­ris, direc­tor of Casey’s nation­al com­mu­ni­ty change strate­gies. We’re look­ing for part­ners who want to sup­port young peo­ple and fam­i­lies in a vari­ety of ways and are excit­ed for more folks to join us in this crit­i­cal work.”

Casey is hop­ing to build on lessons from Prov­i­dence, Rhode Island, Mobile and Sel­ma, Alaba­ma and Kearns Town­ship in Salt Lake Coun­ty, Utah, which are already car­ry­ing out the frame­work, and expand the reach of Evidence2Success into oth­er areas in the South and South­west — where accord­ing to the 2017 KIDS COUNT Data Book, child well-being ranks the lowest.

For addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion about the com­mu­ni­ty selec­tion process, or to receive a copy of the webi­nar slides, please email Mil­dred John­son by July 21, 2017. The dead­line for appli­ca­tions is 5 p.m. ET on August 42017.
