In the beginning it was as simple as one person helping another. Someone was in need of food, or shelter, or maybe they were sick. You gave them what they needed. Life... and philanthropy, is more complex now. We need organizations that can help those in need, while also addressing a myriad of social and economic issues—the issues that caused that need in the first place. This is a story about a non-profit organization that has elegantly merged bold risk-taking with outcome driven, evidence-based programs that are helping thousands of children. But the real power of their story is the interplay of innovation and accountability that can inspire an extraordinary level of creative thinking across America.
