Evaluation and Research

CPPR conducts rigorous program evaluations and applied research in the areas that matter most for our partners. We leverage the practical, methodological, and statistical expertise and experience of our staff to design evaluations and research that adds quantifiable and qualitative value and demonstrate the success of our partners’ work. We specialize in research that can easily be shared and used by all levels of stakeholders.

Researchers and evaluators at CPPR have local, state and national experience conducting comprehensive program evaluations and large-scale cross-site evaluations in social services and programs for at-risk children, youth and families. CPPR professionals are experienced at designing the right evaluation approach and methodology to fit the needs of each partner or project. Our consistent approach is to ensure methodological rigor throughout a project while we work closely with our partners to tell the story of their programmatic successes and challenges.

We focus on helping our partners utilize evaluation to maximize program effectiveness and translate results for funders and policy makers using data visualization and innovative techniques.

We don't just develop an evaluation report for you - we provide the support you need to understand the results, share with stakeholders, and plan for quality improvements.
