Design, Lead, and Train
OUR COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH TO PROGRAM EVALUATIONS
DESIGN AN EVALUATION PLAN
Understand the connection between the problem, your program, and success.
Understand program impact by asking the right questions and operationalizing success. Get clear about what the real problem is, how your program actually solves it, and the implications surrounding it. Know for sure that what your program is doing is actually accomplishing the mission you set out to do.
LEAD AN EVALUATION FROM DATA COLLECTION THROUGH ACTION
Facilitate an equity-focused evaluation with confidence.
In the words of Michael Jackson, “You are not alone.” (cue music) Start the evaluation off the right way by executing it with a plan, resources, and a team that will support you through it. Explore evaluation findings in a meaningful way that leads to action and a deeper understanding of both your program, stakeholders and the problem.
TRAIN + COACH YOUR TEAM TO LEAD OR
Equip your team to carry out an effective evaluation.
Create a culture of evaluation by building an in-house team. Ensure that evaluation activities are ongoing and increase buy-in across the organization. Assess your evaluation needs, current strengths, and areas to strengthen your team.
Meet the Founder
Dr. Cain is an educator at heart and an evaluator by accident (but she loves it here). Driven by her own experiences working in marginalized communities, she uses evaluation as a vehicle to address inequities and to engage others in these critical conversations and practices. Dr. Cain has dedicated 20+ years to ensuring that communities, especially the most marginalized, receive the high-quality programs that they deserve. She is also an east coast nomad residing in Tulsa, OK and a proud flexitarian (bacon or tofu depends on the day).
What Our Clients are Saying

This work has led to shifts in a state-level strategic plan and organizational priorities.”
