Sixty years ago, what became the Ochs Center was founded here in Chattanooga.

For decades, the nonprofit gathered and analyzed data on the state of this city - from public schools to economic disparities to gang violence.

Today, the Center has refocused its mission with a new funding model.

Maryanne Cunningham is executive director of the Ochs Center.
