Mission and Purpose

Through a commitment to shared data, collaboration, and ongoing communication, Children’s Optimal Health (COH) is a collective leadership initiative to ensure that every child in Central Texas becomes a healthy, productive adult engaged in his or her community. COH enables communities, through GIS mapping, to visualize the health of their neighborhoods, identify assets and needs, and unearth opportunities for collaborative change. It is COH's goal to use visual images to inform policy, improve operations, promote research, and mobilize the community to better the lives of our children and youth.
