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.
This 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 U.S. Census Bureau indicators and is available for any community in the nation to use. 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 tool maps community indicators at geographic levels defined by the user, from the state level down to neighborhoods. We hope the tool will be used by community members, policymakers, child welfare leaders, city government officials, and other stakeholders to build hope and promote well-being for families and children.
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.
