Calgary Homeless Foundation is a thought leader in the homeless-serving sector with an innovative approach to research and data.
Our research and data vision consist of two pillars: applied research and agile analytics.
Applied research is research based on real-time data that informs practical, everyday decision-making. It aims to improve the practices and programs of the system of care. You can read more about how we use applied research here.
Agile analytics is an approach to data that is flexible, responsive, and seeks to understand the true effect that programs funded by Calgary Homeless Foundation have on people’s quality of life. You can read more about how we use data.
These two pillars support our efforts to create change within the system of care and to help Calgary reach a Functional Zero end to homelessness – a situation where people are prevented from experiencing homelessness or it is brief and non-recurring.
