A Way Home Washington (AWHWA) (awayhomewa.org) a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE (tsne.org), is mission-driven to prevent and end youth and young adult homelessness across Washington state. In the state of Washington, 13,000 unaccompanied youth and young adults experience homelessness, and young people of color and LGBTQ+ young people disproportionately experience homelessness. AWHWA partners with the state Office of Homeless Youth, philanthropic foundations, advocates, and service providers who support these young people. AWHWA leads and coordinates these stakeholders as we work collectively to build a statewide system so that local communities can respond to youth and young adult homelessness in their areas. In our work, we are committed to racial and LGBTQ+ equity, positive youth development, trauma-informed practices and a data-driven culture.
About the AWHWA Data & Evaluation Team
We are a diverse, action-oriented team, united in our passion for using humanistic data and technology to drive an end to youth and young adult (YYA) homelessness. We develop and implement data strategy for the Anchor Community Initiative (ACI), a central pillar of AWHWA’s mission and activities. The ACI will help the first four communities in Washington state end youth and young adult homelessness by 2022 and is currently expanding. The best part of a Data Team member’s day is usually providing hands-on data coaching to community partners or building a data tool to help communities reach their goals.
A significant ongoing body of work is supporting communities to reach and maintain quality, real-time data on the number of unaccompanied youth and young adults experiencing homelessness in their community. The team also plays a key role with respect to the Centralized Diversion Fund and both qualitative and quantitative data tracking and reporting. Data systems and analysis must be able to reflect the dynamic nature of YYA homelessness and be rooted in achieving equitable outcomes for young people of color and LGBTQ+ young people who experience homelessness at higher rates (disproportionality). To reach this end state, the Data Team also maintains a portfolio of ongoing data science projects that are specifically designed to drive system change, especially on racial disproportionality.
The Data Analyst (internally: Data Solutions Manager) will be responsible for supporting and maintaining AWHWA’s data systems. This includes but isn’t limited to: our Centralized Diversion Fund and other databases, establishing client relationship management software [CRM], Tableau Server deployment, and creating training materials and processes. This is a new position that has been created in response to the growing need internally at AWHWA and in our communities for more streamlined data and performance management tools and systems. This position is supervised by the Data & Evaluation Director to support the design and continuous improvement of data systems that empower our staff, communities, and partners to use quality, real-time data to end youth and young adult homelessness.
