Program Evaluation


Administrators of non-profits and other organizations are frequently asked to provide evidence that the programs they oversee are working as intended and making a difference.

You need to be able to provide parents, providers, and policymakers with reliable, easy-to-understand information. Children’s Institute can help you get the information you need in order to make data-driven decisions about issues that impact the children and families that you serve in your community. Our experienced staff has expertise in a range of academic fields and is committed to helping you continually improve your programs.
