Theory of Change
What does it take to fundamentally alter the trajectory of vulnerable families living in distressed public and assisted housing?
Theory of Action
What are the actions we take and how are they dual-generational?
Actions or efforts at the family systems level always employ dual generation strategies so that there is mutual reinforcement of developmental outcomes and values by adults and children within the family. There are two types of actions, and both of them acknowledge and account for ways in which two generations can influence (i.e., impede or support) one another, and increase the likelihood of worthy outcomes that benefit the entire family.
Actions or efforts at the community systems level do not always employ dual generation strategies. However, we build capacity for leverage and support of dual generation programs whenever possible.
