In each state in which we operate, we work with an external evaluator to assess and help us continuously improve our work. The evaluations combine qualitative and quantitative analysis and use a mixed methods approach, examining survey data, interview responses, case management data, and education data. The evaluation process helps us to identify success metrics, understand the perspectives and experiences of our partners, track the arc and evolution of each project over time, and better understand the impact of our work.
