Our Strategy

BT+ELH is the backbone of this collective impact strategy. We exist to build stronger, aligned systems that serve children, youth, and families through cross-sector partnerships. We activate this network by bringing partners together. We gather data that generates awareness and knowledge. We identify gaps that exist in our communities and systems, initiating strategic partnerships that address those gaps so children, youth, and families can thrive. We also advocate for policy and practice change that is informed by local data, research, and the lived experiences of our community members to create lasting impact. Finally, we leverage resources to do all this sustainably.
