More about this project

Probation Community Resources is an online interactive, searchable map. It represents a collaborative effort between the Cook County Adult Probation Department (CCAPD), the Cook County Juvenile Probation Department (CCJPD), the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law, the Chicago Appleseed Fund for Justice, Health & Medicine Policy Research Group, and DataMade.

Probation Community Resources helps criminal justice personnel refer clients to culturally relevant and geographically specific community-based services throughout the Chicago area. On this site, users find social, health, and cultural resources by identifying client-appropriate facilities, selected by certain geographic boundaries and other search limitations, such as language and age.

By facilitating access to valuable Chicago resources, this project shapes how Chicago criminal justice officers engage with their clients and communities.

DataMade built this website using our open source Carto Template. The data is managed via a Google Spreadsheet that is automatically synced on a regular basis. New entries are submitted via a Google Form, which are then reviewed and added to the source spreadsheet.
