Polk Vision is the LEADing collective impact organization serving the entire Polk County community. We provide central coordination to align the work of hundreds of dedicated volunteers through partnerships of public, private and civic organizations working collectively to make the shared vision of improved community prosperity for Polk County a reality!

As facilitators of a countywide collaboration among schools, non-profits, businesses, and the public sector, Polk Vision offers a framework for achieving sustained improvement. The work is dynamic and requires continuous learning and adaptive solutions in addressing a range of complex issues. Polk Vision refers to this as our LEAD process: Learn all we can about an issue, Engage community partners knowledgeable and passionate about the issue, Align resources to address the issue and Develop plans that will result in systemic change.

This countywide collaborative process provides the following advantages:

• Greater returns on investment – By working together toward common goals, resources are leveraged, duplication is avoided, and efficiency is greatly increased.

• Higher quality services – Utilizing expertise from multiple organizations guarantees a broader perspective and a wiser approach.

• Enhanced capacity – A collective effort enhances the impact of each organization while generating a much greater overall outcome.
