Upcoming Event: Program Evaluation Workshop at Housing Oregon’s Annual Conference on September 19

In this session, presenters Julia Doty, the Director of Resident Services from NW Housing Alternatives, and Chari Smith, President of Evaluation Into Action, will speak about program evaluation.

They will share about what it takes to build program evaluation and data culture in Resident Services, using Northwest Housing Alternatives’ experience with program evaluation as a case study.

The workshop will also cover the Housing Stability Assessment tool which was developed as part of NHA’s program evaluation process, allowing participants to evaluate their own processes for measuring housing stability.

The Evaluation into Action Method

We Start with Design

Before we even begin implementation, we make sure we can answer key questions about the evaluation needs of the organization. “What?”, “Why?”, and “How.”

Then We Implement a Realistic Plan

We’ll assess your organization’s unique needs and capacities, setting you up for success in collecting, managing, analyzing, and reporting key data and insights.

To Use Actionable Findings

We demystify the program evaluation process to generate findings you can use to share and improve your programs. See Expanded Method
