About Shift

We educate and empower social change organizations by providing reliable, objective data and analysis to inform their decision-making process. This shift in perspective helps our partners have a more profound and lasting impact on the communities they serve.

As a program of The Piton Foundation for more than two decades, we are a trusted community partner with access to 20 years of longitudinal datasets. This provides us with a unique ability to track and analyze how the Denver metro region has changed over time.

We are focused on expanding our reach and impact so we can further our mission of pioneering a data-driven culture within Colorado's social sector.

Our Team

We are a small team of passionate individuals working to make data more actionable.

Creating Social Change Together

Shift Research Lab is a founding member of the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership (NNIP). Created in 1995, NNIP is a collaborative effort by the Urban Institute and local partners to further the development and use of neighborhood information systems in local policymaking and community building.
