Transforming data into progress

We help make connections between people and organizations working to improve community conditions and the quality of life of all Ohioans.

Policy Advocacy

Testimony at the Statehouse, educational events like the Medicaid Institute, and legislative relationships amplify community voice and help make sense of a complex system. Organizations in Northeast Ohio and across the state use our public policy analysis to understand policies that affect their work.


Surveys, narrative analysis, demographic research, and community needs reporting reveal changes in the health and human services space and inform next steps. Government, non-profits, foundations, associations, and other organizations use the research that we develop for the public good.

Data Analysis

Fact sheets, Census analysis, poverty trends, and social determinants of health research are among the most popular analysis that we produce. Direct service organizations, funders, and policymakers use our analysis to develop actionable strategies to develop health, social, or economic support for Ohioans.

A team of policy wonks and data nerds at the intersection of advocacy and research, working to improve community conditions for all Ohioans.
