Opportunity Neighborhoods

Opportunity Neighborhoods are place-based initiatives. Led by school-government-community partnerships, Opportunity Neighborhoods engage communities in geographically-defined areas to achieve identified outcomes for children and youth.

What is an Opportunity Neighborhood?

An Opportunity Neighborhood is one where residents, schools, local government, community organizations, faith and business partners work collaboratively to create limitless possibility, ensure the well-being of children and youth by reducing barriers and provide a seamless continuum of trauma-informed supports, using data to understand community conditions, measure success and be accountable for results.
