Communities are continually seeking ways to improve the quality of life of its residents. Addressing the basic needs of shelter, food, safety, and belonging must come first on the road to helping residents thrive. Data helps service providers and community organizers better identify the needs of residents and track progress toward established goals.
In this issue, we share details about our new IndyVitals tool powered by SAVI and discuss how community leaders are using it to help Indy be a better place to live, work and visit. Learn how others have harnessed the power of using data and maps in planning! Read here.
SAVI’s data tools on www.savi.org are currently unavailable. Our team is working to address the problem and hope to have the site back up and running later this week. We apologize for this unexpected inconvenience.
In the interim, if you have an urgent request that cannot wait, please contact email@example.com and we will do our best to help you.
