Impact DuPage website provides data about well-being in DuPage County

Tue March 3, 2015

Impact DuPage, a multi-sectoral group of community partners across DuPage County, has launched a website to support its work of advancing the well-being of the DuPage community.

The website is a central location for information about the quality of life in our community. Data spanning categories including health, the economy, education, the environment, public safety, and transportation will increase the visibility of community needs.

"Impact DuPage collects and organizes information that can be easily accessed to get the facts needed to make informed decisions and collaborate effectively," said Candace King, Impact DuPage Co-Chair and Executive Director of the DuPage Federation on Human Services Reform.

In addition to being a valuable tool for identifying gaps and priorities, the Impact DuPage website creates a central hub for data-driven solutions to address complex issues such as affordable housing, mental health, substance abuse, access to health services, and healthy lifestyles. 

"The Impact DuPage website will serve as an important tool as we work to make sure that resources are being targeted at the most pressing community issues, and that we are able to track our progress objectively," said Karen Ayala, Impact DuPage Co-Chair and Executive Director of the DuPage County Health Department.

Community partners are encouraged to use the website as a resource to prepare grant proposals, develop evidence-based programs, and collaborate with other local efforts. The website is also useful for students, elected officials, city and policy planners, and residents interested in data about the well-being of DuPage County.
