Kelly Hoffman joined Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children in July 2012 as the liaison to the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s national KIDS COUNT project, which seeks to enrich local, state and national discussions concerning ways to secure better futures for all children and raise the visibility of children’s issues through a nonpartisan, evidence-based lens. As the KIDS COUNT Director, Kelly collects and analyzes data detailing the conditions of Pennsylvania’s children in PPC’s areas of policy emphasis. The information Kelly provides is used to develop and review policy proposals and regularly produce detailed reports on her findings and conclusions. In addition, Kelly handles regular requests for information and technical assistance from a broad array of constituencies, including policymakers.
In January 2019, Kelly was promoted to Vice President of Data and Strategy which expands her data work to more strategic planning and directing organizational planning efforts in areas including human resources and technology. Kelly also serves on the national KIDS COUNT Steering Committee and regularly updates the Pennsylvania KIDS COUNT Data Center.
Prior to joining PPC, Kelly was the Statistical Analyst Supervisor at the commonwealth’s Office of Child Development and Early Learning where she gained more than 11 years of experience working with early childhood education data and systems. Kelly holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from Millersville University. She lives in Mechanicsburg with her husband, two daughters and son.
