The confluence of rising social service needs and the shaky economy in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area has heightened the need to critically examine the availability of nonprofit resources for children and youth in the region. As a first step to address this issue, this report uses data from the National Center for Charitable Statistics and several grantmakers to analyze the characteristics of child and youth related nonprofits. The report finds that more than 1,100 nonprofits focus primarily on providing goods and services to children and youth in the D.C. area. Moreover, these groups provide a diverse array of services, are generally long-tenured, and are located throughout the region.
