This report examines how the Rhode Island’s Providence Children and Youth Cabinet (CYC) has changed since adopting the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Evidence2Success® framework seven years ago.

During this time frame, CYC — a coalition of organizations, systems, residents and youth organized around community-generated priorities — transitioned from backbone organization to agile and independent intermediary. 

CYC’s evolution generated valuable insights — identified and explored in this report — that can help other collective impact programs pursue sustainability and fiscal independence.

Key Takeaway

A framework for promoting healthy child development

The Evidence2Success, developed by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, helps communities and public systems work together to: 1) leverage data to better understand how children are doing; 2) identify priority areas and proven programs for these priority areas; and 3) develop financing and action plans to support the selected programs.
