United Way works with our partner agencies to complete outcome planning and evaluation for human services programs. Outcomes measurement is an important tool that strengthens programs and effectively communicates results.
United Way requires all of the programs supported by the Community Action Fund to complete outcome planning and conduct ongoing evaluation of their programs. These programs must submit logic models and outcome frameworks that demonstrate their measurement plans. In addition, these programs annually report their evaluation data to United Way.
United Way also encourages all human services programs to use outcome measurement. We provide resources and training on developing and implementing outcome measurement plans. As part of this effort, we offer the following documents.
