Changing Lives…

The Full Frame Initiative (FFI) is a national nonprofit organization that works to break cycles of poverty and violence through systems change. FFI has discovered the common DNA among the organizations that effectively serve people with multiple challenges — lasting change occurs when people are supported in the full frame of their lives.


By Changing Systems.

Many more organizations want to operate with a Full Frame Approach, but are stymied by barriers in the social service system. There are obstacles embedded in public policy and philanthropy that stifle what works best. Removing those barriers is the single most effective path to lasting change, while saving millions of lives and billions of dollars.

In partnership with practical visionaries in government, philanthropy, nonprofits and communities, the Full Frame Initiative is removing systemic barriers, unleashing the potential for more people and more communities to thrive.
