Community of Support
What is a Community of Support?
A Community of Support (COS) is designed to provide an opportunity for collaboration, support and accountability around valued topics. Communities of Support can be Affinity Groups working together to support one another and a common initiative as well as topic driven Passion Initiatives. Collectively provides a platform to address complicated social issues through shared wisdom, individual growth, connection with others and accountability.
Affinity groups bring like-minded individuals together to address common interests, needs, and provide an open forum for communication and information sharing. Collectively supports Affinity Groups through providing a platform, structure and support utilizing the Collectively model to make these groups successful.

Passion Initiatives are designed as an opportunity to bring diverse groups of stakeholders together to collectively solve complex challenges. Passion Initiatives utilize a structured Collectively Think Tank model which results in a product at the end of the process. Moderated facilitation of the process for informative, call to action, or listening circles creates an opportunity for dialogue in a safe space to address complexity. Passion Initiatives are designed to address complex social justice issues. click here (take them to a registration page where they can submit their contact information and what kind of organizational support they need)
