Community leaders saw the need for a data hub to get an overall scope of data, services, and strategies in place to address priority health issues. The goal of the data hub was to provide a transparent scope of services, allow guidance for programming and funding, and plan evidence-based strategies. The data hub would allow for the community to work together with collective impact and lessen gaps and silos.
The Drug & Alcohol Awareness & Prevention (DAAP) of Morrow County provided backbone support for collective impact in Morrow County, and the data hub through the Community Collective Impact Model for Change Initiative (CCIM4C) grant. This grant is funded under the federal 21st Century CURES Act, and The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.
Through the CCIM4C, community leaders created strategies for Morrow County by combining a data-driven, strategic planning process across agencies to work on addressing the opioid epidemic by reducing trauma and promoting resiliency. The CCIM4C can be used for not only substance abuse, but all health issues that are being addressed in a community.
