Keeping an eye on the Community
The Community Collaborative of Tahoe Truckee seeks to understand the stories of our local people by getting rooted in the work and using data to inform leaders and drive results.
In order to measure the health of our community, CCTT analyzes:
- Where people live
- Educational opportunities
- Access to transportation
- Languages spoken
- Access to healthcare
- Diet and exercise
- Family dynamics
- And more…
Community Health Indicators
In some neighborhoods, up to 35% of our families live in poverty. CCTT addresses complex issues related to basic needs and housing security by creating a community safety net. By sharing resources and information, CCTT makes sure more people are fed, housed, and safe.Learn More
Third grade is a pivotal point in a child's education, where a student transitions from "learning to read" to "reading to learn". Only 40% of all children and 20% of low-income children read proficiently by the end of third grade. This gap affects kids for the rest of their lives. Tahoe Truckee Reads reaches underserved children in five North Tahoe-Truckee neighborhoods.Learn More
As vibrant and beautiful as our mountain region is, our community struggles with high rates of substance abuse and growing mental health concerns. In 2018, 34% of 11th graders reported experiencing chronic hopelessness and sadness. CCTT partners make access to healthcare easier in the mountains. TTCF and CCTT collaborate with sister mountain communities to address our shared mental health concerns.Learn More
