Collaboratives

Jump start your community collaborative with the momentum, consensus and support it needs to affect community change. Catherine Marshall can :

  • Facilitate initial community meetings to gain consensus on core purpose and action
  • Provide training to nonprofits forming collaboratives in their communities
  • Supply ongoing technical assistance to a community collaborative through all growth stages

Catherine Marshall, the author of “Field Building: Your Blueprint for Creating an Effective and Powerful Social Movement,” developed this book to simplify the complex task of forming a community collaborative. The book is available in paperback or as an e-book through most bookstores.

“Catherine Marshall worked with the United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra in 2009 to help develop our regional coalition that would address asset development and family financial stability. When Catherine joined us, our coalition had formed but was in its early developmental stages and in need of guidance. Catherine helped us to craft a plan for the coalition, guided our committees to create workplans, provided thoughtful and relevant recommendations regarding the formation of asset development programs, and facilitated our general meetings. The combination of Catherine's extensive knowledge in the area of asset building and her expertise in developing a coalition accelerated our ability to launch the Financial Stability Partnership for our region. We are very grateful for her assistance and highly recommend her.”
