The goal of this coalition is to cut poverty in Nashville in half. The overarching goal was to create a public-private partnership charged with the responsibility to develop and implement a community-owned blueprint (an action plan that once implemented would result in our meeting our goal). Knowing that we could not rely on government alone to accomplish this, the aim was to leverage the passions, resources, and strengths of existing public, private and faith-based poverty reduction programs and projects. This coalition has been highly successful.
