The Denver Children's Cabinet was established in 2012 as the policy making group to coordinate city-based programs and services in order to create opportunities for Denver's children and youth to succeed.
To understand the complexity and distribution of factors related to the goals of the Denver Children's Cabinet, a foundational set of data indicators at the neighborhood level are provided in this storymap. A report, The Status of Denver’s Children 2018: A Community Resource, provides in-depth information on how Denver kids and their families are faring using a variety of indicators – looking at the actual numbers as well as the places with high or low concentrations of factors. This resource is intended to be used to inform programs, services, and investments in children and youth as they relate to the city’s goals for children.
Mayor Michael B. Hancock created the Peak Performance program in 2011 to increase taxpayers' return on their investment in city government.
Peak partners with city departments/agencies to empower employees to improve their work processes through training, coaching and support.
Through 2017, these efforts have saved Denver over $25M, while also dramatically reducing wait times at locations such as the Department of Motor Vehicle, and signing up more than 25,000 users to customized online services like Pocketgov, shifting workload to lower cost channels.
