Research demonstrates that community characteristics – for example, concentrated poverty, unemployment and degree of residential instability – are associated with rates of child maltreatment and can influence child and family well-being. Mapping community-level characteristics provides decision makers with a valuable tool for better serving children and families. The Community Opportunity Map (COM), developed by Community Attributes Inc. and customized for Casey Family Programs, is an interactive mapping platform that displays publicly available community data in user-specified geographic areas, from state and county levels down to neighborhoods. The COM is designed as a tool for establishing municipal priorities, engaging cross-sector partners and community stakeholders, allocating and targeting scarce resources, and, ultimately, preventing child abuse and neglect through community-level interventions.
