Our Vision Statement

Ohio's Human Services Data Warehouse will be used to strengthen collaborative efforts to alleviate the interrelated issues of homelessness and poverty through analysis of cross-system data related to homeless and at-risk populations.

Benefits of a Data Warehouse

The primary benefits foreseen in working with data at a statewide level include:

Cross-system analysis of services, trends and mobility patterns and the ability to assess the impact of investments in housing and human services to inform funding and policy decisions on the state and local levels;

Identification of system gaps and opportunities for cross-system collaboration;

Quality of data, including accuracy, timeliness and definition to educate the public, elected officials and other policy makers on the issues that affect the stability of households and communities.
