How does Starting Point use our data?

Great question. Starting Point uses the data bank to pinpoint neighborhoods with child care shortages, income levels of parents seeking care, need for care, and other statistics. This helps us plan region-wide services and programs for families, providers, and the community.

For Ashtabula, Lake Geauga, and Cuyahoga Counties the data is a valuable source of information on children and their families. The data bank is also helpful for grant writing and identifying areas where we can make the greatest impact. It is an essential tool for anyone working to improve the lives of children and their families in our region–Starting Point team, included.
