The Providence Mayor's Children and Youth Cabinet was formed to improve outcomes for children and youth in Providence. An early focus of the Cabinet is on data and data-sharing. One piece of the data work is to determine areas where data-sharing and collaboration can improve the delivery of services to children and families in Providence.
There are two goals for data sharing and collaboration:
- Availability and use of aggregate data to inform policy
- Provision of relevant, timely data for practitioners on the front line delivering programming.
