The Prosperity Miami (PM) pilot initiative - a collaboration of Catalyst Miami, New Florida Majority, and South Florida Voices for Working Families - was an effort to build on the philosophy and practices of the groups mentioned above.

This paper highlights the lessons learned from this attempt at social innovation and provides implications for future similar collaborative efforts.
