In 2018, OSH, in collaboration with the CoC, launched the Data Literacy Institute, now known as Data Engagement Workshops. The workshops consist of a series of training opportunities and development of learning materials for the CoC and community partners. The goal is to help staff at all levels enhance their understanding of the data collected in HMIS, how to measure program performance, and how to use data to effectively communicate the success of your programs.
UPCOMING: Data Engagement Workshop: Understanding Bed and Unit Inventory (BUI)
It's important your agency maintain up-to-date and accurate data on one of the most fundamental elements: Bed & Unit Inventory. Being able to see and review past trends and needs will give you insight into how you're serving the community and help you update and/or change inventory.
BUI has been in the forefront because of Federal Reporting and this workshop will help Agency Leads and Program Managers at housing programs navigate this crucial housing element.
