Achieving positive outcomes for young children and their families requires new thinking in how we conceptualize, address, and finance our interventions. Increasingly, teams of institutions and organizations are working together to establish a common vision and mutually reinforced objectives, rather than individual institutions or agencies focusing on a single set of goals. Within this context, the nonprofit sector has a unique opportunity to advance innovation in program planning — through the promotion of high-quality program replication and using data to guide collective decision making. Working in partnership with public agencies, the nonprofit sector has the potential to create and test new ideas in ways that can complement and strengthen child and family policy. This forum discusses several examples of how strong leadership within the nonprofit sector is achieving these outcomes in both the United States and Australia, and identifies the challenges the sector faces moving forward.
