#GrowingUpNTx Social Media Campaign

The North Texas Community Foundation recently introduced a new tool that makes it easier for civic, nonprofit and philanthropic leaders to develop programs and policies aimed at improving outcomes for local children at risk for poverty, neglect and abuse.

Growing Up in North Texas 2016: A Community Assessment for Tarrant County surfaces the top issues facing local youth from birth to 18 and recommends key solutions. It identifies family economic stability, literacy rates at third grade, infant mortality and child maltreatment as primary areas to focus attention.

We produced the report in response to requests for an accessible, reliable data portrait of how our children are doing and which areas are most critical for intervention. Growing Up in North Texas provides data for Tarrant County, along with comparative data for five other metropolitan areas. It was produced by the North Texas Community Foundation in partnership with Children at Risk and Child Care Associates.

You can help make North Texas a place for children to thrive!

The North Texas Community Foundation is partnering with area nonprofits to spotlight how local organizations are addressing the issues highlighted in Growing Up in North Texas. We invite you to participate in the #GrowingUpNTx Social Media Campaign.

Simply share snapshots of the assessment through your organization’s social platforms.
• All you have to do is identify pieces of information from the assessment that are a logical fit with your organization’s mission and programming (data that helps you tell your story), then post and tag #GrowingUpNTx.

• Images are provided below for you to post, and you can download the full report here.

• Remember to use our recommended hashtag (#GrowingUpNTx) in all posts so we can interact with your content on the North Texas Community Foundation’s social platforms.
