First in state: Shared dashboard to help monitor well-being of children | Hometown

ELKHART — Keeping an eye on the well-being of Elkhart County children is becoming easier,

ELKHART — Keeping an eye on the well-being of Elkhart County children is becoming easier, as several community organizations have collaborated to create a shared Child Dashboard, which they say is the first of its kind in Indiana.

The online dashboard has more than 45 data points showing trends for child well-being and safety, empowering organizations to make informed decisions for a healthier Elkhart County. The dashboard, which will be updated quarterly, uses data indicators from both local organizations and public sources to help gauge the health of the community and trends in child well-being.
