Implementing a Data-Driven Approach to Tackling Homelessness

Wednesday, February 06th, 2019
In order to build a true data-driven solution that can be utilized for solving the problem of homelessness, we must first build a methodology to understand, model, simulate, and ultimately re-think where needed the ecosystem of solutions aimed at ameliorating homelessness in a city. A mechanism that allows us to understand, design, and view an ecosystem of solutions will be able to give us as near as possible an exhaustive view of all of the organizations, programs, people, and technology that are currently in play, presumably interacting with each other to solve a particular problem. The end goal of this assessment is to build an accurate model that simulates how siloed homeless solutions in a city interact, operate, and lead to desired outcomes. This allows for the ecosystem of solutions’ impact on the homeless population to be understood, measured, and modified as needed. Follow this link to read more.
