Skillman Good Neighborhoods

Data Driven Detroit (D3)   (Detroit)

February 2012

D3 is working with youth services providers in The Skillman Foundation’s Good Neighborhoods program to determine what outside-of-school youth programs are available to young people in the six designated “Good Neighborhoods” areas, document the types of services offered, and whether there are any gaps in service. Launched in 2006, The Skillman Foundation’s Good Neighborhoods is a 10-year, $100-million program that focuses on six Detroit neighborhoods where today nearly 60,000 children live, roughly 30% of the city’s child population. The program also involves a range of neighborhood development and system change strategies in concert with various public and private partners, as well as with residents and other stakeholders.
