WHO WE ARE

The Jackson Collaborative Network is a collective impact network of more than 500 members that includes local educators, business leaders, social service providers, residents with lived experience, physical and mental health providers, philanthropy and local elected officials. 


Network members are committed to working together in alignment with shared values of equity, authentic engagement, and continuous learning to identify and address the root causes of issues that affect the success and well-being of Jackson County residents.  

The network is supported by a small team of staff that provide core services and supports that are designed to build and strengthen community capacity for systems change.

WHAT WE DO

The Jackson Collaborative Network brings partners together around shared priorities and provides valuable supports to assist them in their systems change efforts. These supports assist members in identifying inequities, determining their root causes, and designing/implementing powerful strategies that result in improved outcomes for residents. 

Network services and supports focus on building the capacity of members to engage in and lead systems change efforts within their own organizations and collectively within the community in alignment with shared priorities.
