The Baptist Health Foundation of San Antonio has awarded one year of continuation funding to the Presa Community Center for Project Puente, a promotora/community health worker program to prevent immediate hospital readmission by providing low-income and senior people with heart failure – as well as their families and caregivers – with the knowledge, skills, and tools to successfully manage their condition. CI:Now provides data and evaluation support to Project Puente.
Laura McKieran, CI:Now Director, has been elected to a three-year term on the Executive Committee of the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership (NNIP). NNIP is “a collaboration of the Urban Institute and local partners in 30 cities to further the development and use of neighborhood-level information systems for community building and local decision-making.”
Supporting Place-Based Initiatives: Revitalizing San Antonio’s EastPoint is a brief case study of CI:Now’s data support work for EastPoint place-based initiatives like the Eastside Promise Neighborhood and Wheatley Choice Neighborhood.
