We have an obligation to the children in Rundberg and Dove Springs, and the disabled single moms and veterans in Pecan Springs and Rosewood, to ensure that they access a level of opportunity that gives them a fair shot at a decent life.
Opportunity Matters: Central Texas is dedicated to transforming data into action that promotes greater socio-economic equity for all Central Texans. Our work is grounded in GIS mapping that help us better understand the spatial dynamics of how opportunity is distributed in our neighborhoods, cities, and region.
Opportunity Matters is a joint initiative of Green Doors, a Central Texas non-profit housing organization focused on increasing opportunity for our community’s most vulnerable, and The Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, a think tank at Ohio State University, focused on deepening our understanding of the causes of—and solutions to—racial and ethnic disparities worldwide and to bring about a society that is fair and just for all people.
