About This Program

Target Population: Communities in economically challenged areas

Program Overview

Magnolia Place Community Initiative (MCI) uses a network approach to leverage resilience and community assets to combat the entrenched problems that children and families face. MCI believes the connections between the people and institutions of all sectors can drive positive community change. The research continues to build evidence for the importance of building, strengthening, and maintaining connections in the service of data-driven collective action that continuously monitors progress. MCI network tends to the number, variety, and depth of those connections in the 500-block catchment area.

MCI builds, tends to, and measures their network so that it:

  • Holds itself accountable to child and family well-being outcomes
  • Continuously uses, collects, analyzes, disseminates, and refines data for action
  • Brings together a variety of partners from different sectors and creates spaces for community participation and leadership
  • Fosters distributive leadership so that all network actors (agencies and residents) can have an equal opportunity to plan for and take collective action
