Why This Course?
Despite centuries of evidence linking health and housing, in the U.S. today, more than 30 million homes have significant health hazards, including poor heating, plumbing, gas leaks, and lead. Additionally, 30 million people live in low-resource neighborhoods with low levels of access to transportation, healthy food, green space, health care, and other critical services.
Our mission at mySidewalk is to democratize the data people need to solve these problems. We build tools that make it easy for anyone (not just the experts) to access, visualize, and share data to ensure everyone has safe, affordable, and dignified housing.And we’re inspired by our customers who are using data to educate themselves and their partners, and to catalyze collaborative action.
They are community advocates, program managers, policymakers, and analysts. They represent government, nonprofits, health care companies, universities, and philanthropies. They’re coaching neighborhood leaders on doing data-supported advocacy, conducting holistic assessments, and designing equitable solutions to improve lives in their communities and beyond.
We want to keep widening that circle - and one way to do it is to invite others in by sharing what we’re learning and helping them grow their impact, too.
