Abstract

The Problem: Traditional capacity-building approaches tend to be organizationally focused ignoring the fact that communitybased organizations learn and take action in a larger network working to promote positive community change.

Purpose: The specific aim of this paper was to outline a vision for a Third Sector Alliance to build organizational, network, and sector capacity for community well-being in Miami.

Key Points: Building a foundation for social impact requires a strategy for organizational, network, and sector capacity building. Organizational, network, and sector capacity building can best be achieved through a cooperative network approach driven by a solid community–university partnership.

Conclusion: Although a Third Sector Alliance for Community Well-being does not yet exist in Miami, Catalyst Miami and the University of Miami (UM) have partnered closely to articulate a vision of what could be and have been working to make that vision a reality.
