To improve neighborhoods and quality of life, we must understand various aspects of a neighborhood, its residents, housing, access to employment, business, education, health services, transit, parks and more. Understanding the interconnections of these areas is the first step to improving access to opportunity. The second step is being able to use this information to engage in cross sector solutions and make strategic and equitable investments.
South Florida Community Development Coalition also believes that with the equitable investment we can create opportunity right where people are.
