Focus Neighborhoods


Neighborhoods in North Fair Oaks, East Palo Alto, South San Francisco and Daly City were identified with both high youth need and sufficient social infrastructure to support deep community engagement and participation.

High youth need areas have high concentrations of youth in juvenile probation and other county systems as well as key demographic indicators such as high rates of poverty, low reading proficiency and low birthweight. These reflect a combination of factors that impact youth success.

Areas that have significant social infrastructure, or ‘high youth planning readiness’ areas, are home to institutions and facilities that can help incubate community engagement and make it successful.
