The Executive Director of DataHaven, Abraham knows the ‘big data’ of New Haven, publishing several cross-sector reports on trends in community satisfaction, civic life, health, economic security and the environment in Greater New Haven.
A public service non-profit organization, DataHaven partners with local and state government, academic and health care institutions, and community organizations to collect, share, and interpret public information.
Abraham — who is serving as a Fellow of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation in Battle Creek, Mich., as part of a national cohort focused on Racial Equity — was recently presented with an “Impact Award” by the international Community Indicators Consortium.
That honor came for his “cutting-edge approaches to improving community well-being,” including his work with Yale-New Haven Hospital, the City of New Haven, Yale University, and The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven to produce the Community Index 2013, a comprehensive 86-page report that benchmarked the population, economy, health and civic life.
A graduate of Yale University, Abraham had previously worked as a planner for the New York City 2012 Summer Olympic Games Bid Committee. Engaged back in his New Haven community, he serves as a Historic District Commissioner and as a Board Member of Elm City Cycling.
