Child Trends
Living in a supportive neighborhood can contribute to the successful development of children and youth. This fact sheet examines whether children living in a supportive neighborhood have an advantage in terms of connections to family, peers, and community. Results indicate that, yes, children who live in high-support neighborhoods are more likely to have strong connections in other contexts. However, children who live in low-support neighborhoods are less likely to have such connections. (Contains 2 footnotes and 11 endnotes.)
