Collective Impact

For more than 20 years, Safe & Sound has served as a community convener across Milwaukee to support residents in building safer neighborhoods and improving neighborhood level collective

efficacy - the social cohesion in a neighborhood leading to safer communities.

To further aid the break down of silos that exist in our city, Safe & Sound will continue to build collective efficacy among neighbors but will supplement that work with a Collective Impact Strategy to improve organizational-level efficacy.

Collective Impact Strategies aim to bring together people in a structured way to achieve social change. Our goal is to continue strengthening neighborhoods by bringing together residents, nonprofit organizations, government entities, business owners, public safety efforts and others to set common agendas and strategies to collaboratively tackle neighborhood safety and resident stability.
