This episode of Out of the Streets of Portland focuses on one of the most important, time-consuming and altogether under-recognized tasks of the Joint Office of Homeless Services: the collection and analysis of sets of data to help guide and prioritize the work to end homelessness.


The Data and Evaluation Team at the Joint Office engages in data collection, visualization and analysis. This work ensures that we are setting and hitting targets to end people’s homelessness for good. Because behind every data point is a human being, with a story, a history and a unique set of circumstances.

 

In each episode of this podcast we share a story of someone who has experienced homelessness in the Portland metro area. Today we feature the story of Gary, who emerged from over twenty years of homelessness by connecting with Street Roots and joining the Street Roots Ambassador program. Gary is one of the founders of the Street Roots Mobile Journalism, or MoJo program, which has helped in the development of this podcast. 
 

We also talk with Beth Sandor from COmmunity Solutions about Built for Zero, a data-driven approach to ending homelessness, Lori Kelley from the Joint Office of Homeless Services Planning and Evaluation Team, and Dr. Marisa Zapata from the Homelessness Research and Action Collaborative at Portland State University.
