Not all heroes wear capes but oftentimes are found behind a computer screen in a repurposed government building with decades old carpet and stale coffee. It's not a glamorous life but it certainly is fulfilling. Every funding source requires various data metrics for continued support. Whether it be federal monies or local tax dollars, whether we are writing grants or administering programs in lower income neighborhoods, we capture data in a myriad of ways. We must report back to City Council, HUD, our residents, and on occasion, significant partners like Duke Energy, Atrium Health or Bank of America to secure additional funding for various projects.
