Using Health Data to Highlight Milestones: A Cookbook for Non-profit Program Managers was developed in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Branch, the Atlanta Regional Commission, the Center for Working Families Inc., the Georgia Department of Public Health, the Fulton County Department of Health and Wellness, and the Coalition to End Childhood Lead Poisoning.
Budget cuts at all levels of government and decreased funding from foundations are reducing the programs and social services offered by non-profit organizations. In today’s competitive grant- writing climate, data-driven demonstration of need can help your non-profit make a stronger argument for the importance of continuing/expanding services to the populations served by your organization.
This cookbook was created to introduce program managers and grant writers to available data sources on the housing-related health conditions of lead poisoning, asthma, and unintentional home injuries and to provide guidance on how to use these data to highlight milestones and successes.
The cookbook presents national, Georgia, Fulton County, Atlanta, and Atlanta Neighborhood Planning Unit-V (NPU-V)-level data as examples of comparisons of morbidity and mortality across the different geographic areas. However, most of the datasets described here are available in other areas of the country. Information in this cookbook about which organizations collect and analyze health data, along with the key staff members at those organizations, is intended to help program managers build relationships for data-sharing, learn from best practices, and develop referral networks.
This cookbook also describes surveillance systems for elevated blood lead, asthma, and home injuries; the description can assist program managers in creating evaluation plans for their organizations’ green and healthy homes interventions. Lastly, this cookbook discusses the overlapping risk factors that result in health disparities related to housing.
