A New Way of Collaborating
Due to the complexity of child poverty within the context of siloed resources, historical disparity, and vested interests, coordination across stakeholders is more difficult and necessary than ever.

This approach to needle-moving impact has been adopted based on the national best practice learnings from 15 of history’s most important and massive social impact successes.
Bringing Leadership and Resources Together
As an outgrowth of the high profile GrowSouth initiative, a first-of-its-kind council comprised of chief executives from our local systems-level public agencies began meeting to elevate child poverty as a common agenda requiring collective action. With CPAL as the convener, this unique collection of cross-agency leadership will continue meeting quarterly, along with select advisory organizations and community members, to align resources and activate strategies that can achieve impact at scale.
How do we take action together?
CPAL uses data to inform collective action.
