Future 50 class of 2022: See who made the list
Idea: With the United Way of Central Ohio, Columbus Foundation, Franklin County commissioners and city of Columbus, Future 50 could survey a select group of local organizations, city agencies and private companies to examine structural poverty with specific reference to: 1) access to affordable housing, 2) prenatal, infant and early childhood care, 3) reproductive health, and 4) workforce development. The survey combined with recent U.S. Census data could be organized on a GIS (geographic information systems) map that these organizations can use to identify neighborhoods with the greatest need and move the needle on meaningful change there. The high-resolution reference map could graphically display areas of need and service gaps in an accessible, interactive web-based format for the community and its leaders.
