The basis of any non-profit’s work should be a well-designed and thoughtful model outlining the
goals and aspirations of programming. This road map guides a non-profit’s activities and ensures
a process for knowing when and whether they are reaching their goals. Horn Research has the
experience and knowledge to facilitate a comprehensive modeling process that results in the
development and alignment of an overarching vision of success, program level outcome goals, and
indicators to measure achievement. We work with organizations to move beyond output based
evaluation and take hazy notions of “what we’re trying to accomplish” and turn them into
concrete indicators to measure program effectiveness and community impact.
A vital facet of any program development process is the ability to gather on-going feedback to
make appropriate adjustments in service delivery as well as the structure to gather data to
determine impact and outcomes. A successful evaluation plan will provide staff with a strong
foundation to develop long-range program goals and create a sustainability plan for their
programs. Utilizing the key themes, goals, outcomes, and indicators developed through the
modeling process, Horn Research will work with your organization to create a comprehensive
evaluation monitoring plan and structure.
