Program Evaluation and Information Management

Program Evaluation

By blending quantitative and qualitative data in performance evaluation designs to more rigorous experimental evaluation designs, we can illustrate the difference that your efforts are making in the lives of those you serve in the community.

Information Systems

Through a user-friendly, reliable and secure information management system, you can collect critical data with which to measure your program success. Utilizing custom performance reports, you can ensure accountability and provide tools for performance improvement while saving valuable staff time with greater confidence in your data's accuracy and reliability.

Our staff can develop, host, and customize an information management system to fit your needs. They design reports to meet your needs as they relate to program management and funding requirements.
