The Binghamton-Broome Anti-Poverty Initiative (BBAPI) is a community-driven effort to break the cycle of poverty in Broome County. By applying the Collective Impact framework to first explore, then address the root causes of poverty, BBAPI focuses on creating systems-level social change to find solutions to the immediate and long-term barriers affecting individuals impacted by poverty. With a systems-change approach, BBAPI will work to empower individuals and families and create vibrant neighborhoods, where residents feel safe and will live healthy financially-stable lives.
