Using the partnership between the Coalition on Temporary Shelter (COTS) and Rebel Nell (a social enterprise that employs, educates and empowers disadvantaged women in Detroit) as an example, this solutions focused workshop will demonstrate the importance of robust partnerships in assisting families to achieve self-sufficiency. The presentation will help participants evaluate the opportunity for cross-sector collaboration within their own organization’s capacity; and utilize components of COTS model for creating collaborative partnerships.
