The Community Opportunity Map
At Casey Family Programs, we work in support of a range of public, private, tribal and community partners to encourage a shared vision for success. We believe that every community can create hope and opportunities for its children and families.
The Community Opportunity Map is an interactive tool that highlights the aspects of communities that are associated with safe children and strong families. This interactive, research-based framework is composed of select community indicators and is available for any community in the nation to use. Most indicators are pulled from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. The map is informed by significant evidence of the community factors correlated with child maltreatment and a healthy community framework developed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The interactive tool maps community indicators at geographic levels defined by the user, from the state level down to neighborhoods. The Community Opportunity Map 2.0 includes new indicators, allows users to map indicators by congressional district, and features new functionality so users can print and download indicator data. We hope the tool will be used by community members, policymakers, child welfare leaders, city government officials, and other stakeholders to inform decision-making, strategic intervention, calls to action, and stakeholder engagement in order to promote community health and well-being.
Please use and share the Community Opportunity Map and don’t forget to click on the button on the bottom left of the map to tell us how you are using it.
