The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified existing inequities, taking an exceptionally hard toll on the most vulnerable communities experiencing housing instability, homelessness, and racial disparities. In this episode, Jennifer Loving, CEO of Destination: Home, Dontae Lartigue, CEO of Razing the Bar, board member of Destination: Home and board member of the Lived Experience Advisory Board (LEAB), and Erin Connor, Public Investment Program Manager at Cisco, join the podcast to discuss the collective impact model. In a conversation moderated by SVCF’s Executive Vice President of Community Action, Policy and Strategy, Gina Dalma, these bold leaders discuss how they are using this model to address the social issues that have been overwhelmingly exacerbated by the pandemic. Listen in to learn the critical need for public-private partnerships, how Destination: Home, SVCF, Cisco and other partners united quickly at the onset of the pandemic to support the most vulnerable communities and how they continue to address homelessness and systemic racial inequities.

In SVCF’s Philanthropy Now podcast series, we explore trends in the world of philanthropy, social impact initiatives in Silicon Valley and beyond, and we look at how SVCF promotes innovative philanthropic solutions to challenging problems.
