Collaborative Action Networks for Collective Impact
ImpactTulsa’s Collaborative Action Networks (CANs) engage partners across organizations to collectively take action to improve community-level outcomes using data-driven continuous improvement. The CANs also provide participants with tools and practices they can draw from and incorporate into their organization’s own efforts towards advancing best practices and outcomes.
Collaborative Action Networks in Action
Nutrition Access CAN
Aimed to bring partners together and address the food crisis experienced by families living in Tulsa county. This CAN focused specifically on people living near 61st and Peoria, while also looking through a universal lens on policy changes that can improve access to nutritious foods. We paid specific attention to SNAP enrollment, as well as other factors related to nutrition access that members of the group identified as being important.
Invited partners to come together and address the challenges posed by how the Ages and Stages Questionnaire data was being handled. This information was intended to be used for connecting families to the resources they needed in order to address developmental delays. CAN participants used the ASQ to complete a landscape analysis of relevant providers in Tulsa.
