The MCI Network is part of a growing field of place based networks-communities that have figured out the strength of using connections to have a positive impact on a particular place in order to improve the wellbeing of children and families. Some of these place based networks have been brought together into a Population Change Learning Community to exchange best practices and learn from each others’ experiences. As part of this work, a Collective Capacity Survey has been developed in collaboration with partners and is being tested. We use this Collective Capacity to help us prioritize which areas of building a healthy network to pay attention to throughout the year.
