So, like most of the world, I’m a little in love with Google.
Not only is it massively awesome in general, but I also happen to be from Northern California – right in the neck of the woods that houses Google, Apple, and some of the other tech-y powerhouses. (Yes, you are correct: I AM a nerd.)
Recently, the Alliance installed Google Analytics on our own website, and I’ve been having a ball checking out the different stats and data, trying to figure out what people like, what people don’t like, what people never see.
So turns out, this is what you guys like (our most visited pages):
Here, you can the fast-and-dirty answers to all your most pressing questions, like
“What is a ten-year plan to end homelessness?”, “Why is Homelessness an Important Issue?”, and
“How Much Does the Government Spend on Homelessness?”.
2007 Homelessness Map
Ah, the data, data, data. An analysis of the last official homelessness counts from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Also available: state by state data, different demographics of homelessness, and homeless population changes from 2005.
If you’re visiting this section, then you already know that the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program, a $1.5 billion dollar program that were approved as a part of the federal stimulus package designed to help address and prevent homelessness.
Some things that I think are worth a few more hits:
The 2009 Counts Media Map
An interactive map with the latest reports of 2009 homelessness counts. The official report isn’t out yet, but this map tracks news reports from communities that have already submitted their information.
A listing of homelessness-related stories on the national, state, and local level. (It’s always provided me insight with what people are talking about, and what’s going on in areas that I care about.)
The Alliance is a leader in homelessness field. Our work includes research, policy analysis,advocacy, and education. We’ve got a lot to offer – and you should know just what you’re missing.
Take a minute, check it out, and let me know what you think.
