Abstract

The accessibility of nonprofit services is a key factor in promoting effective service delivery networks for children and youth. In the D.C. metro area, little was known about the location of nonprofit providers in relation to the residential patterns of children, particularly from low-income families. This document, which is the second in a series of "fast facts" on child-related nonprofits in the D.C. region, summarizes the major findings of the report entitled, "Spatial Connections: Examining the Location of Children and the Nonprofits That Serve Them in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area." The research finds a significant relationship between the locational patterns of child and youth nonprofits, particularly social welfare organizations, and high rates of child poverty in neighborhoods in the region.
