Kids Matter Here: An Analytic Review of the 10-year Good Neighborhoods Initiative
In 2006, the Skillman Foundation set out to change conditions for Detroit kids by creating the 10-year, $100-million Good Neighborhoods Initiative. To best understand the outcomes of the long-term neighborhood-based work, we worked with a variety of evaluators, residents, stakeholders, grant partners, staff and trustees to form a series of analyses and dialogues. Together, these products make up KIDS MATTER HERE: An Analytic Review of the 10-year Good Neighborhoods Initiative.
We hope to synthesize what the decade of work has accomplished, inform our decisions going forward, and build and share knowledge locally and nationally.
