Building a healthy, prosperous and sustainable community
The Central Valley Community Foundation, in collaboration with the Fresno Business Council and Fresno State, is pleased to share a free online community resource offering centralized access to impartial, transparent, verifiable and relevant data about Fresno County. The Scorecard shows community trends and allows for progress measurement in specific areas that demonstrate where Fresno is succeeding, and where improvement is needed.
This online tool features key indicators in the following categories:
- Culture & Quality of Life
- Economic Vitality
- Safe Community
- Strong Families
- Sustainable Infrastructure
Two local disability service organizations, Easter Seals Central California and Able Advocates, recently turned to the Scorecard to glean insights from the indicators displayed in the Equity category. The information affirmed and bolstered their commitment toward a collaborative partnership. The data revealed a continued gap in three key areas of disability services. By sharing the strengths of each organization (along with their respective human and capital resources), they are now poised to make a greater impact on individuals and families in need of quality in-home respite care, early intervention training for young children with autism and provide specialized adaptive equipment.
The Scorecard connected the dots from funding to service provision and ultimately to the enhanced quality of life and increased independence for hundreds of children and adults living with disabilities, right here in Fresno County.
