Community Commons is about advancing community health and well-being, and for the last decade we have done that through connecting those driving change to the best tools, resources, data, and stories to support the work. We are proud to carry that work forward. Learn more about what’s next >>
Since the relaunch of Community Commons, we've engaged with you (our users) to understand what you love and what works for you.
The past six months have been a tremendous experience. Back in January, we told you we were going to be vulnerable, and we’ve appreciated you jumping in to experiment and innovate with us. The opportunity to learn with you and refine Community Commons to be your go-to resource has been invaluable. We now know more than ever about what you love, what works for you, as well as what you (frankly) aren’t excited about.
We’re excited for what’s to come! You’ll be able to search and discover everything you’ve been looking for on Community Commons, as well as relevant tools and resources you didn’t even know you needed.
Of course, we’ll stay true to our core: always pointing you to data and tools from around the web to help implement community change and providing a technology infrastructure to foster shared learning and collaboration.
We are grateful for the many diverse organizations, national networks, philanthropies, and local change-makers who continue to invest in Community Commons, through both collaboration and monetary donations.
Didn’t you guys just launch a site in January?
We did. We’re committed to making Community Commons the best go-to resource for those driving change in their communities. But, what is most helpful for you is not always constant: as our communities change, along with the data and technology environment, your needs change. We want the Commons to adjust to meet your needs, and we’re committed to continually improving the site to do so.
What can I expect?
You'll be able to search and discover stories, maps, and data you've been looking for on the Commons, as well as relevant tools and resources you didn't even know you needed. Great things lie ahead, including innovative partnerships, useful data frameworks, and new ways to discover data and resources. You'll also find ways to connect with others doing similar work across geographies to share perspectives and learn from each other.
Why the change?
When will the new site launch?
Our goal is July!
Will you have maps and data?
Absolutely. We know that having access to maps and community-specific data is integral to your work advancing the health and well-being of your communities. You’ll be able to search by topic to find unique maps and shareable data visualizations, all embedded right on Commons.
You’ll still be able to access the original Commons CHNA data report and mapping tool via our partners at CARES Engagement Network and the recent reports and collections you may have seen from Broadstreet, where you’ll be able to access saved collections.
