The CEA works with organizations to help them develop a deeper understanding of the impact that their programs have on the stakeholders they serve. To accomplish this larger goal the CEA:
- works to understand the needs of the community
- develops a clear plan that connects program activities to desired outcomes
- identifies relevant evaluative questions
- designs an evaluation that best meets the informational needs of the organization and its stakeholders
The CEA’s approach is rooted in rigorous methodology and informed by stakeholder values to offer an evaluation service that is focused on helping organizations and programs improve and develop.
