Communities of Opportunity (COO) is a growing movement of partners who believe every community can be a healthy, thriving community—and that equity and racial justice are both necessary and achievable. We believe that the most meaningful, just and sustainable solutions are generated in partnership with communities—who know what they need to be healthy and thrive. Communities of Opportunity is a key pillar of Best Starts for Kids as children, youth and families can thrive when their communities are healthy and when our policies and systems support community priorities. Communities of Opportunity is setting a course for positive change throughout the region by addressing racial equity, tapping into existing community expertise and leadership, and strengthening community capacity to take on local challenges and bringing new resources into communities.
