From the First Call For Help Dashboard website June 2015 http://www.211oh.org/trending/
This is really helpful to see trends in the community. 2-1-1/First Call for Help has introduced a "dashboard" to show up to date statistics about people calling for help. This is typically inside baseball behind the scenes stuff, but it is very helpful to show where there are holes in our social safety net. We have collected updated stats here and we have a blog that we put interesting graphs that we find regarding poverty and homelessness. Housing is always high on any of the lists from First Call For Help.
New 2-1-1 Community Dashboard
Thanks to a generous grant from the CareSource Foundation, and in partnership with RTM Designs, United Way 2-1-1 created a dashboard for the community to monitor real-time 2‑1‑1 trends. By visiting 211oh.org/trending you can view counts of needs and trends for various age demographics and topics, including housing, food and behavioral health. The grant provides all 2‑1‑1 centers in Ohio who utilize ReferNet, the opportunity to create local dashboards based on the Cleveland model at no cost to them. This is a work in progress, and we're looking forward to the next version, which will include unmet needs and outcome data.
Really nice upgrade.
