Community Resilience Framework

The Community Resilience (CR) Framework bridges cross-disciplinary research in social determinants, early childhood development, neurobiology, and disaster preparedness and response to analyze the complex interactions between public systems, policies, and community outcomes.
 The CR Framework focuses on community and population health outcomes that result from policies and practices of the housing, public education, law enforcement, and criminal justice sectors. Grounded in the principles of applied system dynamics modeling, the model demonstrates how behaviors of these systems interact and produce outcome measures such as employment, homelessness, educational attainment, incarceration, and mental and physical health.
