Our Pillar Services
EVALCORP offers three pillar services, which can be leveraged in conjunction with one another or provided as a standalone form of support for your organization’s goals.
At EVALCORP, everything we do is about you, your organization, and the community you serve. With that in mind, we adapt our services to align with the needs and scope of your organization. Our core services include the following:
Program evaluation is one of our most sought-after services. Organizations turn to this service to determine whether their programs are effective, meeting their intended goals, and impacting the right community members.
By utilizing our program evaluation services, it is possible to definitively measure the efficacy of your program. You can identify what aspects of your initiative are meeting your goals and pinpoint areas for growth or improvement to better serve your clients. Ultimately, this enables you to make every program more viable, productive, and sustainable.
When providing program evaluation services, our first objective is to clearly define the goals of your unique initiative. This is one of the most crucial parts of the process. After all, no two clients are the same, and your initiatives and goals will be vastly different than anyone else’s.
That is why we put such an emphasis on customization. We take the time up front to understand your organizational culture, administrative layers, community context, and timeframes and resources — this way, we can adapt our approach to your specific needs and ensure quality services.
Once we understand your initiatives and goals, we begin gathering and analyzing performance data to measure and document the impact you are already making with the people and communities you serve.
After that, we will generate an accessible and actionable report that outlines our findings, observations, and recommendations. Your leadership team can put this information to use and decide whether the program should be expanded, revamped, or left as-is. This report also demonstrates the good you are already doing in your community, assisting you in your efforts to acquire new funding or maintain existing grants.
A needs assessment is the process of discovering the needs of the community and identifying gaps in your existing resources that need to be filled in order to fully meet those needs.
To this end, during a needs assessment, EVALCORP will examine the needs of populations of interest to find out what services or efforts would improve their quality of life, health, and access to opportunities.
For instance, by partnering with us to conduct a needs assessment, mental health services providers can determine the most prevalent concerns among their client populations. They can then use our findings to create and implement new programs to address specific mental health challenges.
EVALCORP’s needs assessment services deliver the most value when utilized during program planning and creation. You can use our needs assessment reports when communicating with stakeholders and requesting funding. Our thorough, easy-to-digest reports clearly demonstrate why funding is necessary and how it can be used to make an impact in your community.
Prior to setting a budget or defining the scope of a program, you can partner with EVALCORP to conduct a needs assessment in your targeted service area. You can then tailor every aspect of the program based on the measurable needs of your community’s population, rather than attempting to augment the program later.
Our needs assessment services help organizations in a multitude of sectors optimize their services and maximize the reach of various community-centric initiatives. EVALCORP’s needs assessments also ensure that historically underserved demographics receive equitable access to much-needed resources.
EVALCORP offers strategic planning consultant services for nonprofits and government agencies, tailoring our approach to meet your unique and ever-changing needs.
As part of these services, we partner with you to develop a strategic plan for your organization. This involves gathering input from your stakeholders, identifying their top priorities, and assisting with the development of both short and long-term organizational goals.
After identifying the goals most important to your organization, we will work with you to develop a cohesive strategy for achieving these objectives.
As always, our services and input are guided by extensive data gathering and information analysis. We use relevant, timely data to provide actionable findings and inform decision-making processes. This data is especially helpful when requesting additional funding or asking for grant renewals. When you present decision-makers with a cohesive strategy that shows how funding will be allocated and outlines the impact they can expect it to have, they will feel much more confident about giving your organization the resources it needs.
By making data the heart of all we do, EVALCORP is able to deliver optimal value for your organization and the people it serves.
