The Center for Strategic Community Innovation (CSCi) is a nonprofit intermediary committed to improving conditions and the quality of life in communities. We build capacity among communities and their institutions through a wide range of planning and coordination services. CSCi specializes in breaking down silos to identify and apply multi-sector best practices in public education, youth development, health, social services, juvenile justice, and community development.
We help communities and their institutions promote healthy, educated and successful children, youth, seniors and families in the best way they can – thereby achieving a more equitable and just society.
We work on improving partnerships, systems and services in low-income communities where positive changes in service quality and delivery systems can make the greatest impact.
Often our work is at the intersection of service systems helping to:
- coordinate for efficiency and smooth operations
- integrate services for effective delivery and successful outcomes
- optimize synergy across systems and services
We believe that when authentic partnerships and collaborations across different sectors are formed, meaningful opportunities emerge to support and enhance community life.
