Whatever It Takes is all about the power of collaboration.
Like the hub of a wheel WIT pulls together Neighborhood Leaders, families, educators, agency partners, health care professionals, academics, and other experts in a results-accountable framework. We do this through Strategic Action Teams charged with developing, implementing, and evaluating solutions focused on specific areas of a child’s life.
Strategic Action Teams made up of approximately five hundred people from the Athens community and over seventy institutional partners have worked thousands of hours to put together a plan that creates a seamless longitudinal network of support for kids from preconception to post-secondary graduation. This work has developed into a number of evidence based solutions addressing the needs and leveraging the strengths unique to our community.
