Collaboration & Learning

Community Collaboratives

Collaboratives work together in order to solve problems and enable transformational change. Collaboratives in health and human services, education, recreation and economic development have been the strength of our TriCounty area. 

The Foundation has worked through and strengthened existing networks or assisted groups to create new networks to link efforts in Western Montgomery, Northern Chester and Eastern Berks Counties. 

  • Pottstown Area Food Collaborative – A group of highly engaged, cross-sector entities with a shared vision for a localized food system that increases access to healthy, affordable, culturally appropriate, sustainably produced food. 
  • Pottstown Area Regional Recreation Committee (PARRC) – Comprised of representatives from eight municipalities in the TriCounty area, PARRC seeks to promote the development and maintenance of recreational facilities, encourage the preservation of open space, and implement better planning for parks and recreation for all. 
  • Pottstown Early Action for Kindergarten Readiness (PEAK) – A state and national model, this initiative focuses on building partnerships with early learning programs in the Pottstown community.
  • Pottstown Metropolitan Regional Planning Commission (PMRPC) – Preserves and protects rural areas and promotes long-term economic growth.
  • TriCounty Health Council (TCHC) – Created to work together on the health and wellness of our community.
  • School Collaborative – Provides school faculty, staff and administration a mechanism to work together as they strive to provide healthy school environments.
  • TriCounty Community Network (TCN) – An organization offering resources meant to empower partnerships and affect positive community changes.
