Good Shepherd Services, a multi-service agency that works annually with over 30,000 youth and families through more than 80 programs in under-resourced New York City communities, recently used the Child Opportunity Index in their updated report entitled “Expanding the Geography of Opportunity in New York City.” This document has been shared with policymakers, funders, and external stakeholders as well as internal staff. Good Shepherd Services says, “We appreciate the index because it allows us to frame our work in terms of structural issues of equity and to highlight the importance of developmentally-informed interventions.”
