Funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, this document accompanies Achieving the Anchor Promise: Improving Outcomes for Low-Income Children, Families and Communities, and provides infomation on dashboard indicators connected to anchor institutions. Anchor institutions are place-based entities such as universities and hospitals that are tied to their surroundings by mission, invested capital or relationships to customers, employees, and vendors. These ties link institution well-being with the well-being of the community in which it is anchored. As a result, anchor institutions are leveraging more of their economic, human and intellectual resources to better the long-term welfare of the communities in which they exist. This study seeks to introduce a framework that can assist anchor institutions in understanding their impact on the community and, in particular, their impact on the welfare of low-income children and families in those communities.
