CSC Broward has been co-leading collective impact efforts through the Broward Children’s Strategic Plan (BCSP) using Results-Based Accountability since 2010. CSC and community partners have also supported local and national history workshops, partnership development, data use, community participatory action research, and policy/system changes since 2016. Most recently, CSC partnered with Dr. Cirecie West-Olatunji, a Professor at Xavier University and the Director of the university’s Center for Traumatic Stress Research (CTSR). With the help of Dr. West, CSC is taking a strength-based, emancipatory, culturally responsive approach to research, evaluation, and community-led work that engages its residents as partners and co-designers. The research and evaluation initiatives build resiliency and develop solutions to pervasive social and economic issues. (See HEAL RFP Visioning & Community Report)
