Impact Data Measurement | New Story

Measuring Our Impact

We are measuring the quantifiable impact of a home to constantly learn, improve, and increase our impact.

What Is Impact Data?

Quantifiable Impact

We aren't satisfied in only measuring our impact by the number of homes we build or individuals we help. Through impact data we are studying the quantifiable impact of a home on education, well-being, income and community building. We're beginning to learn exactly how families are thriving and where we need to improve. Learn more about our impact metrics below.

Sustainable Communities

With everything we do, we aim to generate sustainable and positive impact on beneficiaries lives. We know that progress isn't a linear trend and communities are complex social systems. We're collecting impact data to amplify beneficiary voice and start a conversation about how we can constantly improve and iterate on our model.

Donor Transparency

Funders and donors deserve to know the their immediate and long-term impact. Through our platform we'll share impact data updates on the specific family a donor funds and about the community as a whole. We believe knowing your impact should be the future of charity.
