Teams Working Towards This Vision

The Collective Impact project team is comprised of more than ten local consultants that are trained and available to assist organizations and individuals wishing to utilize the Collective Impact Model, a a cross-sector approach to solving complex social and environmental issues on a large scale. Transform Rockford recently used a Collective Impact approach on making sense of data on 3rd grade reading. Learn about the results and the Ready to Learn team. Interested in being a trainer?

Every neighborhood in our region has a story to tell. But for too long, it’s been buried. That’s why the Great Neighborhoods team, in partnership with Transform Rockford, formed. In its mission to implement a strategic plan for the region’s self-improvement, Transform Rockford and the Great Neighborhoods team are empowering our city’s neighborhoods to play up their unique Sense of Place, in part by instilling pride in where we live. The team has spent the past year engaging with 40 active neighborhood groups around Rockford, building community and sharing best practices. Learn more and uncover what makes your neighborhood great, unique and desirable.
