Safety Net Partner Resources


United Way of the Columbia-Willamette’s (UWCW) strategic investments to break the cycle of childhood poverty are ambitious. Within these investments is a new approach to the issue – joining together an array of grantees to set high goals and to work cohesively for social change. This Learning Framework has been created to capture our full experiences – that of each of the grantees and that of their collective involvement as a Safety Net Learning Community. Accordingly, there are six domains (see Figure 1 in Attachment A) that highlight the evaluation elements of these investments. This toolkit aims to provide a basis of understanding to grantees, funders and community members of how UWCW will be evaluating partners’ success in breaking the cycle of poverty.
