Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Jackson Collaborative Network?

The network is a collaboration of many people and organizations that are committed to working together in new and different ways to address complex problems.  The network isn't an organization or a program, it's a way of being.  This way of being is built upon the knowledge that we're all part of a system of policies, practices, resources, and programs that aren't producing equitable results for community residents.  Years ago, many people and organizations agreed that changing those results wasn't something any one person or organization could make happen by themselves. That's where collective impact comes in.  Learn more about collective impact here.  Learn more about the Network and its history here.
