About Us

Who we are

System Change Partners is helping communities use data to drive better system outcomes. We work with community champions to design tools that bring real-time insight into what’s working, what isn’t and how to create actionable steps for change. We coach communities to build data systems that work for them. 

With over a decade's experience in homelessness data systems, data science,  and evaluation, Liz and Vishesh created SC Partners to fill a glaring gap in our field. Communities are passionate about systems change but too often don't have the data infrastructure available to help them make sound real-time decisions. 

How can you get to your destination if you don't know where you're going?

SC Partners helps communities create measurable goals so that they know where they're going and supports them to build the road map (and infrastructure) necessary to get there, while tracking their progress along the way.
