Forward

A Unified Strategy to Advance Human Flourishing through the Church

A UNIFIED STRATEGIC GOAL

40% of 14,000 marginalized kids on a path to upward mobility by 2030

Why Kids?

A city for marginalized kids is a city for everyone.

This unified strategy focuses on marginalized kids because they are often the ones most affected by systemic barriers to flourishing.

Addressing these barriers for them means advancing human flourishing for everyone.

A Network Approach to Complex Challenges

True community transformation requires diverse partners from various sectors working together. This strategic plan pursues systemic change through four collaborative action networks.

Empowering Focused Collaboration
Across these networks, For Evansville convenes those working most closely with the people affected by systemic barriers.

We provide the support they need to collaborate around a unified strategy and lead with a unified voice while also remaining focused on the specific people and places they serve.

Integrating the
Local Church

84% of people in our region identify as Christian, as do most of the leaders serving marginalized kids.

A key part of scaling what works will include integrating the local Church to become advocates and partners.
