We’re inviting you and your team to join a regional cohort on a Local Theory of Change led by Fred Richmond & Joanne McLain.
A Theory of Change (TOC) in practice is the next step for agencies that have ROMA-trained staff and are ready for integrating ROMA practices and principles across their agency.
A clearly stated Local Theory of Change communicates an agency's approach to poverty and how it uses resources and partnerships to enable economic security for families it serves.
We are recruiting agencies from all six Region 8 states to bring together a wide range of wisdom and experiences. We strongly encourage you send several people from your agency (staff, board members, volunteers, and any partners can participate). This opportunity is open to all Community Action Agencies and CSBG partner agencies (subgrantees) are invited.
Cohorts will meet for four times on either Tuesday or Thursday mornings and will meet twice as a combined group for a total of six sessions.
Participants may choose to share their Theory of Change at the Region VIII Conference on Poverty July 20-22, 2022 in Breckenridge, CO.
