Sieda Community Action continuously collects data from our numerous programs, clients, and the community. Sieda client data collection starts from the moment our staff works with people who come to us with a need. Whether that is donations from a group in our community, meals the children are eating in our Head Start classes, enrollment in a specific program, tracking home visits, financial assistance distributed in our services, applications submitted, or staff training hours.
Sieda staff collects and enters this information into numerous data systems. The Program Managers collect this information to report and provide to their Unit Directors. Sieda’s three Unit Directors share their service data monthly in meetings and in Unit Reports to the Executive Director and the Board of Directors.
Every few years, we also have Client and Community Needs Assessments to learn how Sieda can better serve those in need and the community. Comments from the surveys help motivate us or learn how to improve.
This dashboard and future dashboards will reflect just a few of the abundant numbers and information that Sieda collects from our programs, surveys, and community.
