CORE is new. It’s bold. And it can make a real difference to move families out of the traps of poverty for generations to come.

CORE - Creating Open Roads to Equity

Creating Open Roads to Equity (CORE) is about placing the whole family at the center of a collaborative partnership where multiple nonprofit, public, and private partners are working to meet the needs of both the child and the adults in their life, together.

We are adopting two very promising national models: Collective Impact and a 2-Generational approach. Together, our new work helps place children birth to age 8 and their families with low income at the core of a collaborative system of care to address the unique root causes of a family’s struggle and dismantle the systems that keep families trapped in poverty.
