X4Impact Service Desert Maps™ for Counties, Metro Areas, or States

An X4Impact Service Desert Map™ is a powerful visualization of the opportunity gaps between populations in need of services and the number of nonprofits servicing specific locations or the flow of social funding towards those populations.

Service Desert Maps bring data to life for community organizers, funders, and advocacy organizations to understand where underserved populations may need additional interventions accessible to them.

Use this infographic to understand:

  1. How can your outreach strategy use data to understand nonprofit organizations in a specific region?
  2. What are the Service Deserts in a county, metro area, or state where organizations seem to be underfunded?
  3. Where are the opportunity zones when defining an impact plan?

The infographic includes:

  1. Introduction to the population in need of the services provided by nonprofit organizations in the selected impact area
  2. Visualization of the distribution of nonprofits providing services in the selected impact areas vs the distribution of funds and the population in need.
  3. Nonprofit organizations at a glance, including the number of organizations, total reported revenue and main focus areas.
