Civic Support Enterprise

Through our Civic Support Enterprise, the NDSC Team provides pro bono data support services such as rapid response research, data analyses, and custom visualizations to local community partners. The Civic Support Enterprise allows partners to use the resources available on NDSC in deeper and more expansive ways to better plan and implement programs, fundraise, and communicate the impact of their work.

If you or your agency are interested in receiving support from the NDSC Civic Support Enterprise, please contact NDSC Systems & Data Manager Elly Schoen at to learn more. We look forward to working with new and existing partners to find innovative ways to use data to advocate for a better quality of life in our communities.

Featured Project

Equitable Recovery from COVID-19 in South Los Angeles

During the pandemic, South LA was one of the most impacted areas in Los Angeles County, consequently the response and recovery needs to be proportional, equitable, and a coordinated effort on behalf of service providers, community members, philanthropy, and local government. This report provides deep insight into the impact of COVID, and data-driven recommendations for recovery.

The South LA community has always been resilient with a rich history of culture and a cultural center. To recover from decades of disinvestment compounded by the pandemic, an equitable long-term strategy is needed to remove barriers to prosperity.
