Mobile, Alabama joins communities of Utah and Rhode Island to implement the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Evidence2Success framework. Evidence2Success promotes healthy child development by supporting public investment in programs proven to help young people. The Evidence2Success framework is for civic leaders who are ready to commit to strategic alignment of resources, both financial and human, for child well-being in a new way – to prevent problems before they happen. It is a roadmap that helps communities and public agencies establish a partnership with a shared vision of child wellbeing. No single partner, strategy or funding source can support the community-level change possible through Evidence2Success.
