A Focus on Equity
While Horn Research has formed partnerships and conducted projects with a wide range of individuals and organizations representative of myriad backgrounds and experiences, the core of our work is on social justice issues. The majority of our projects are focused on understanding how to improve the lives, health, and opportunities of people who have historically been disadvantaged.
We feel it is vital that we are inclusive of all groups particularly those marginalized by mainstream culture to provide them with a voice. Horn Research believes that the best projects are those where all community members are engaged in the process and are partners in charting the course for change. We strive to accurately reflect the communities we serve by being inclusive of age, creed, color, disability, ethnicity, familial status, gender expression, sex, immigration or citizenship status, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status.
After many years working in survey research at Cornell University gathering, analyzing and reporting data, Lisa Horn set off on her own to provide consulting services to the Tompkins County community. In 2009, Lisa became a founding member of Finch Network LLC, a community development consulting firm and was lead investigator on several high impact projects throughout the northeast. In 2012, Lisa found herself with a desire to return to an exclusive focus on research and evaluation.
Determined to impact her local community for the better, our founder took her years of experience and community connections to create Horn Research.
Her goal: to provide high quality research and evaluation services to vital community service providers.
Horn Research’s aim is to provide the most useful information and recommendations to our clients.
We accomplish this through collaboration with our clients and partners, ensuring our work is inclusive and contextual, focusing our efforts on rigorous data methods, and providing reporting products that are accessible and clear.
