This report documents the Annie E. Casey Foundation's effort to learn from families, communities and organizations around the country about their experiences with social network strategies and approaches. Using the voices and experiences of the families and organizations visited, the report summarizes findings from these visits and helps lay the groundwork for the development of a social network point of view for the Foundation's practice and measurement work in the "Making Connections" sites. This is the second in a series of five on social network approaches and practice. (Contains 3 figures, 7 endnotes, and a list of sources.)
