Tommy Pearce, Director

Neighborhood Nexus is building a culture of data-informed decision-making among Georgia's mission-driven organizations. We do this by helping community groups, nonprofits, and local agencies ask the right questions, use the best data, tell compelling stories, and ultimately make informed decisions.

Nexus is an initiative of four regional partners: Atlanta Regional Commission (our physical home), Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta (our fiscal agent), Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, and United Way of Greater Atlanta.
