As the Prosper Waco backbone organization, we aim to keep our Waco community aware of the progress of the Prosper Waco initiative. At the beginning of each year, we produce a What To Expect report to inform the Waco community what collaborative projects the Prosper Waco backbone and community partners are currently working on. Toward the end of the year, we create a report detailing the progress we’ve made as a community working to address the goals of the initiative. We also produce the Greater Waco Community Indicators Scorecard, which is an in-depth look at the content we’ve gathered for the initiative.
As we continue in our efforts to measurably improve the education, health and financial security of people in our community, we look to other communities for best practices, attend conferences to deepen our knowledge about collective impact and network with organizations across the nation. Below are presentations that Prosper Waco staff and community partners have presented at conferences around the country:
