To achieve our vision of a Proactive, Innovative, and Resilient community, everyone will have to do their part. Fortunately, over 40 organizations and many individuals have come together in the MAPP coalition to achieve success!

In order to tackle complex social issues, no single organization can work in isolation. Rather, research has shown that Collective Impact occurs when organizations from different sectors agree to solve a specific social problem using a common agenda, aligned efforts, and common measures of success.

The following groups are using a collective impact process to improve community health and increase family well-being:

          1. Homer Early Childhood Coalition
          2. Homer Safe Routes (group page in development – contact adele@bunnellarts.org)
          3. Green Dot (group page in development – contact rachel@havenhousealaska.org)
          4. SKP Resilience Coalition (formerly known as SADV)
          5. Woodard Creek Coalition (group page in development – contact dconverse@prattmuseum.org)
