Building Capacity to Meet the Demand for Human Services through Partnerships with Health Care
June 18, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
As hospitals and clinics increase screenings around the social determinants of health, referrals to organizations that provide services to address these needs also will increase. However, questions remain about the ability of nonprofits and other community resources to absorb these increased referrals for services. In this webinar, a team with Visible Network Labs will share what they have learned about the nonprofit sector’s ability to respond to growing demand through data analysis, a review of models, and case studies. Designed for local leaders, this presentation will also describe practical strategies for assessing capacity, strengthening partnerships, and integrating services and systems to improve health outcomes. Presenters will give real-world examples of how social sector leaders are assessing their community’s capacity and finding innovative solutions to meet local needs.
Community-based health and human services are still undervalued relative to hospitals and health systems. In this webinar, you will learn concrete steps to bring nonprofit capacity to the forefront of local conversations to work toward policy and funding mechanisms to support this important role.
Based on a recent study funded by Systems for Action, part of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, this workshop will describe strategies for taking a systems approach to assessing your local nonprofit sector and building its capacity. Learn more about how to document your community’s existing capacity and prioritize community investments through a systematic, data-driven approach.
