Mission:
Target demographics: Our goal is to get the “right information to the right people at the right time” so that decision makers … families, educators, agency executives and government officials can make the best possible decisions about how to choose services, allocate resources, and deliver programs as efficiently as possible. We are building a regional Information Commons to unify information about our community in a way that will give us a better understanding of the issues and a data-driven foundation for planning and analysis. We envision a region where decision makers and community leaders have simple ways to access data, use good information to make informed policy and investment decisions, combine their passion for social issues with good quantitative analysis, build successful creative collaborations, and utilize innovative technology to efficiently manage regional information assets.

I was a part of a group that met several times over the course of last year to offer feedback concerning a database that 3rc was putting together. The database includes information about youth programs in Pittsburgh and the surrounding area. They really are doing an incredible job trying to create a central database for information for funders and program providers. The site is www.swpaafterschool.org. It really is an incredible database that everyone should check out.

The Computer Clubhouse was an amazing project that I saw come to being when I was working in East Liberty. Bringing truly quality technology to underserved neighborhoods is not a new concept. However, also bringing people and programming that took full advantage of the technology and expanded participants skills and horizons is. Kudos, 3RC!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make, staff and run computer clubhouses all across the Pittsburgh region.

This organization provides a great resource, particularly for nonprofits in the Pittsburgh area. The information for so many different services is in one location. For instance, I was looking for a comprehensive list of after school programs in the area through the humanservices.net, and it was so nice to just be able to go there to find the information, instead of having to google it and hope I get good results.
