About Centre Hope
WHO WE ARE
Centre Hope is a non-profit private foundation dedicated to addressing system-level challenges in the delivery of services that result in the improved social and health and well-being of youth, adults, children, families and communities.
We bring together government, nonprofit, community and private agencies that find themselves often working in silos, and we drive inter-sectional, collaborative, community-driven initiatives that bridge the silos to achieve system-level change. We’ve adopted a foundational approach based on the belief that systems-level change is needed to help people facing complex challenges such as domestic violence, mental health challenges, addiction, poverty, homelessness and poor health. To achieve systems-level change, Centre Hope is committed to increasing collaboration and engagement among key stakeholders including social and health services agencies as well as the people who use the services. We believe the solutions to improve the system exist in the lived experiences of these key stakeholders, and effective engagement will draw out the solutions from them and provide direction to act on good ideas. Center Hope also believes in developing and using evidence to help determine the success of solutions through the use of innovative technology to improve data collection.
When done right, we believe technology and data can increase collaboration, enable effective evaluation and monitoring that highlights inefficiencies and more effective sustainable ways of working, as well as help build relationships among all key stakeholders to improve the social and health well-being of individuals. To achieve this, Centre Hope has partnered with Thinkcatalyst, a medical analytics software company. Thinkcatalyst’s platform integrates real-time data, resource mapping and quality metrics while providing automated data analysis to determine such things as cost-efficiencies. This work is supporting Centre Hope in the coordination, delivery and evaluation of services in both healthcare and social services.
THE WAY WE WORK
Centre Hope operates as a “backbone organization” that brings stakeholders together to create better services at a systems level, to improve outcomes for individuals, to build trusting relationships, and to develop evaluation and monitoring tools to ensure efforts are successful.
We do this through: • collaboration • innovation and prototyping • human-centred and system design • diversity and inclusion • adult learning • change management • evidence-based decision-making • quality data
