An 18-month initiative, funded by the Basic Needs Giving Partnership, to equip the region with continuous improvement methodologies focused on poverty. The Poverty Outcomes & Improvement Network Team (POINT) are using these processes to strengthen existing poverty reduction efforts, address service gaps, and measure progress on reducing poverty in Northeast Wisconsin.
There are nearly 90 active improvement teams participating in this initiative. Organizations are participating in quarterly learning sessions and are getting hands on coaching to better understand the concept of continuous improvement and have created key performance indicators that will strengthen poverty reduction efforts and establish key milestones to track progress.
This is the first of its kind regional approach to poverty where the communities of Green Bay, Fox Cities & Oshkosh will be working towards the same aims and indicators of progress.
