Providing Effective Crisis and Financial Stability Services: a Strategy Paper to Inform the United Way of Greater Rochester’s Blueprint for Change Process

The United Way of Greater Rochester seeks to target community resources more strategically through a well regarded Blueprint for Change process. CGR developed a strategy paper to help the United Way in its efforts to provide more effective crisis and financial stability services in Rochester and Monroe County NY. CGR’s proposed strategies are: 1) homelessness and hunger prevention; 2) respond to immediate food and shelter crises; 3) provide pathways to housing stabilization, self support, and well-being; and 4) strengthen community-wide crisis response systems. CGR also identified 15 promising programs across the U.S. that align with the strategies, and what is needed for local programs to succeed.
