Volunteer Needed - Database Designer

We need help creating and implementing a user-friendly database to track performance measures and report program outcomes. Excel is no longer cutting it!


Our goal is to capture data points including client demographics, dates of service, referral sources and more, and to be able to run queries and reports for metrics such as how many people we served during a specific date range, and the data points for those specific people. We'd also like to know how to create new queries and reports as needed.

This will primarily be a one-time project to get the database up and running and train our staff in it's use; however, we hope to be able to call on you from time to time as needed. You will work with the Executive Director, Development Director and Program Assistant to understand our needs and create a user-friendly system. As a nonprofit, we need to use a low-cost database platform such as Access; however, you may have other suggestions.

As a volunteer, you will feel great knowing that you have eliminated one of our biggest pain points - data management and reporting. Good data helps us raise the money we need to execute our mission of providing end-of-life housing and hospice care to the homeless. Your work will help us ensure that no one dies alone and afraid on the streets of our community.

Skills Required:

Extensive knowledge of the database software and experience creating and managing databases. We need to know that you're dedicated to completing the project, because we all have limited bandwidth.

Part-time Volunteer Position: As many hours per week as you can devote through project completion.
