Neighborhood/Community

Healthy children can only develop in the context of healthy neighborhoods and communities. In recognition of this knowledge, most work of the Center includes a neighborhood/community component. The Center’s projects focused exclusively in this area examine the influence of neighborhood processes on children of different ages and the effects of residential change on low-income families, with particular attention given to the intersection of neighborhood and family resources and the opportunities and challenges they present for enhancing the well-being of children.
