The New Era of Collaboration

Health Care Access Clinic has been pleased to work alongside 10 peer non-profit organizations over the past 6 months to talk about how to do business more collaboratively. Instigated by United Way's new model of community impact and building on the already important outcomes results, these agency directors got a jump start on the process that must be in place a year from now under the UW Health Goal. LOTS of hours of meetings and many difficult conversations have already led to more trust and communication between agencies. Two joint grant applications to United Way were turn in for this funding cycle as a result of this work. The next 12 months will be laboring as well, developing shared objectives and stronger alliances, but the vision and vehicle has been established thanks to this new structure. Hats off to our peers for their investment in this important step forward for the betterment of the clients we serve: Visiting Nurses Association, Douglas County Dental Clinic, Douglas County AIDS Project, GaDuGi Safe Center, Trinity In-Home Care, Meals on Wheels, Independence Inc., Lawrence Community Shelter, CASA, and Headquarters.
