Since 1992, the Center for Applied Research and Engagement Systems (CARES) has been working to integrate the use of technology and information in decision making processes. Over the years, CARES has worked extensively with geographic information system (GIS) technology and data. CARES was an early adopter of web-based mapping systems, and continues to innovate and extend the field to many subject areas. Through making information more accessible, usable, and understandable, CARES is striving to enable audiences – ranging from government leaders to rural citizens to community activists – to better succeed within our world.
For more than two decades Community Initiatives (CI) has been working and learning alongside many of the leading community improvement efforts. CI has helped hundreds of multi-sector coalitions and partnerships—serving our largest and smallest communities—strengthen their local capacity, build relationships, spark imagination and mobilize their collective will to create positive change. CI offers a unique blend of content and policy expertise, together with the skills and tools essential for genuine collaboration.
