This is one of the most fundamental aspects of running programs: understanding if they have been successful, unpacking the intentional and unintentional impacts of the programs, and looking for opportunities to make the programs even better. Funders also rely on program evaluations to see how their dollars are translating into community impacts. We have experience in evaluating a wide variety of programs, of many sizes, serving diverse communities.
Your Program Goals
We help you answer questions about your programs so you can make strategic decisions, and be responsive to stakeholders:
- Are we meeting the goals of our program?
- Are we still meeting the goals of our program?
- Did we do what we said we would do?
- Who is being impacted? To what extent? In what ways?
- Where can we improve?
- How can we support more people?
- How can we translate our program to other populations/areas?
- What should we do next?
