Doing More with LessLessons from Listening Social Service Agencies’ Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
Governments are struggling to do more with less–that’s the key message we took away from our conversations with leaders in social service agencies across the country.
The COVID-19 crisis has accelerated the growing movement for stronger partnerships between philanthropy and government, with increasing calls for philanthropy to invest in training government employees and leaders who are in critical positions, help governments identify and attract top talent, and support the creation or expansion of positions that fill specific skill gaps. The critical question for government agencies and foundations seeking to implement this strategy is how to put it into practice.
Third Sector Director Oscar Benitez joined the Future Fridays podcast to discuss our work, how we partner with communities to ensure human services are being delivered with a focus on outcomes for those who need them most, and how we’re seeing government adapt service delivery in light of COVID-19
As we enter our third month of pandemic precautions and remote working by e-mail and video-conference, Third Sector remains committed to supporting our valued partners in creating positive outcomes for their communities. Please take a look at a variety of resources our team has been working on that may help your community continue to consider long-term outcomes as we all enter the endurance phase of serving our communities during the pandemic.
