The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.  - Mahatma Gandhi

Mission Statement

Welcome to the Science of Social Problem Solving

The Civic Health Coalition is a nonprofit that uses the latest developments in science and technology to solve social problems.  Our mission is to create science and technology based resources that can be used to tackle a broad range of social issues.  Our present focus is on developing the tools needed to help solve the nationwide affordable housing crisis.

When it comes to solving the affordable housing crisis, our approach involves applying the insights of Social Science, the methodologies of Data Science, and the advanced analytical tools of Artificial Intelligence (AI).  Our Social Science approach involves the academic theories and insights of Economics, History, Law, Politics, Psychology, Social Geography, and Sociology.  The Data Science approach applies the scientific methods of data analysis - compiling and analyzing data from thousands of data sources covering every major city across the country.  Our artificial intelligence models focus on combining the capabilities of Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning to find patterns that lead to the deep insights needed to develop viable solutions.

A scientific approach to solving social problems is critical, because every community has a different set of circumstances and challenges.  Social problems are complex and cannot be addressed using an inflexible one-size-fits-all approach.  Real solutions can only be found by working within a multidisciplinary framework that is hypothesis-based, data-driven, and adaptable.  Combining social science theories, data science methodologies, and advanced AI tools gives us the ability to find solutions that are tailored to the specific needs of each community.
