The Community Opportunity Map

COM_10-2020

At Casey Family Programs, we work in support of a range of partners, including the children and families we serve each day, to promote a shared responsibility for ensuring the well-being of every child and family across the nation. 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. It was 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 3.0 includes new indicators, including COVID-19 data and resource accessibility, and allows users to disaggregate many of the data indicators by race and ethnicity.

Please explore the new training videos below, and use and share the Community Opportunity Map. Remember to click on the "Help & Feedback" button on the bottom left of the map to tell us how you are using it.
