Kate Warren joined Community Solutions in 2014, and now serves as a Director, Greater Cleveland ARP Coalition, a local effort to track and influence federal relief funding flowing into Cleveland and Ohio. In her prior role at CCS as Research Fellow, she focused on racial disparities, poverty and social determinants of health, work that has been used by advocates and policymakers throughout the region to work toward improving conditions in the community. She has developed resources to support local advocacy efforts, including community fact sheets for neighborhoods, legislative districts, cities and counties across the state. She consults with many organizations in greater Cleveland to help them assess the communities they serve, build capacity, and better utilize data to inform their work.
Before coming to Community Solutions, Kate’s experience included outcomes measurement and direct service work with Cleveland’s homeless population at The City Mission. She serves on the Board of Directors of Old Brooklyn Community Development Corporation, was a member of Cleveland’s 2020 Census Complete Count Committee, and sits on the planning committee for Data Days CLE.
