Infographic Illustrates Opportunity Gap in Contra Costa County
March 27, 2019
While many kids in Contra Costa County are thriving, others lack basic health, education, and financial supports they need for well-being and long-term success. Since countywide statistics can mask such issues, regional data is useful for highlighting disparities and targeting resources. That’s why the Contra Costa Economic Partnership in collaboration with Children Now, The Lesher Foundation and First 5 Contra Costa has developed an infographic to help illustrate the need to close the opportunity gap in Contra Costa County.
Addressing this problem will require a long term commitment from nonprofit partners, elected officials, and employers — we are proud to be a part of those continued efforts.
