Ward 7 news: Calgary Homeless Foundation makes international news

  • Share

Ward 7 Official Website

The Calgary Homeless Foundation moves from TAKING best practices from other places to BECOMING the best practice.

The concept of "Collective Impact" was first raised in Stanford Social Innovation Review's Winter 2011 issue, resulting in an overwhelming response from organizations and individuals interested in guidance on implementing these principles. In their follow up article, "Channeling Change: Making Collective Impact Work," the authors have held out the work of the Calgary Homeless Foundation as an example of "Collective Impact."

Congratulations to Tim Richter, the board, staff and partners of the Calgary Homeless Foundation.
