Public Health Seattle-King County Supports Communities of Opportunity Place-Based Initiative

Communities Count   (Seattle)

November 2019

  • Communities Count also offers data and evaluation trainings to support the Communities of Opportunity Learning Community (although the trainings are open to anyone in King County). Communities of Opportunity is an initiative that was catalyzed in 2014 by King County and the Seattle Foundation uniting with each other and with communities to address inequity; promote leadership; influence changes to institutions, systems, and policies; and seat the base of power within communities. The Learning Community creates spaces for communities and organizations to share their work and gain additional skills across sectors and geographic areas to advance impact across the region.  The training topics include logic models, basic data analysis, and evaluation techniques. Communities Count Staff also provide COO grantees with technical assistance and individualized data support consultation to help increase local capacity for using data and evaluation.
