At Compass Affordable Housing we have been collecting specific program data utilizing data collection forms and inputting them into an excel tracker. I want the forms to feed into the tracker electronically so that in populates automatically and I then can pull the data/reports that I need specifically. For example, increase in income from the time of entry into our program through exit.
By easily tracking and reporting program performance and data, we save many hours of direct staff time that can be used elsewhere in the organization. In addition, this information allows us to solicit more funding and serve more people in our community.
The mission of Compass Affordable Housing is to improve the quality of family and community life through low-cost housing, support services and advocacy.
