    • Managing all data entry processes as well as the structure, content, and accuracy of Safe Harbor’s client database (Apricot);
    • Identifying and overseeing additional data collection methods, such as client surveys, interviews, or other approaches;
    • Collecting and aggregating all statistics from staff, and maintaining year-to-date service information for easy reference by all leadership staff;
    • Culling data for monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual grant reports;

    • Staying current on general domestic violence statistics and research;
    • Identifying patterns, trends, and gaps in service data, and translating these into powerful stories that elevate our collective work.
