Meet the Staff: Scott Murphy, Data Analyst

Here at SSF, we are driven by data-driven best practices and focus on improving the performance of our homeless system and our local projects. We are pleased to introduce: Scott Murphy, Data Analyst.

We sat down with Scott to learn about his background, what drew him to this work, and what he looks forward to doing in his role.

What does your role entail at Sacramento Steps Forward?

Building and updating dashboards and other reports as needed.

What motivated you to join SSF?

I have been working as a Business Intelligence Developer in the medical field for 5 years and decided it was time for a new challenge. It also gives me the opportunity to give back to the community I live in.

What do you wish people knew about homelessness?

Every un-housed person has unique challenges and there is no one size fits all.

What are you excited to do next in your new role?

Just making a contribution to help with the homelessness problem in our community.

Scott, along with the Data Team, is working to make data available in a way that helps everyone understand homelessness and gives decision makers actionable information. But when he’s not working, he enjoys walking, road cycling, motorcycling, photography, and most outdoor activities.

We are excited to have Scott join our growing team and we look forward to his contributions to optimizing the Data team.

We encourage you to take a look at the latest information on our Public Dashboard and EHV Dashboard.
