 CCFutures Report CC FUTURES Program EvaluationCatholic Charities of the East Bay (CCEB) is a diverse, multi-service nonprofit human services agency. Since 1935, it has played a central role in providing social services and advocacy to those most in need in Contra Costa and Alameda counties regardless of their religious faith. In 2009, Hatchuel Tabernik and Associates worked closely with CCEB and CC County staff to develop the Evaluation Plan with appropriate methods for collecting data necessary for the SROI analyses, and to implement the projects during a six-month Pilot Test Phase. From January 2010 through July 2012, HTA worked closely with CCEB and CC County staff to provide technical assistance on follow-up data collection and verification of income documents, and to conduct analysis of one- and two- year follow-up data to evaluate the program’s effectiveness on predicted outcomes, and calculate the program’s social return on investment for the Monument Corridor community.

Contra Costa College (CCC) HSI STEMCurrently, HTA has begun an evaluation of the Contra Costa College (CCC) Link program – a comprehensive approach to substantially reducing the achievement gap in college completion and transfer rates among Hispanic and low-income students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields in the Contra Costa Community College service area. We have been contracted to conduct an evaluation and build internal capacity for program staff. In addition to creating baseline and outcome student surveys, program attendance tracking databases, and other key stakeholder focus group protocols, we intend to analyze the data to evaluate the program’s impact on supporting success among Hispanic and low-income students in STEM coursework, degree programs, and certifications, and provide on-going feedback on implementation progress so that programmatic changes can be made, as needed. In addition, we provide the client with technical assistance on the federal government’s semi-annual progress reports, as well as create an annual evaluation report on progress towards program goals and implementation.
