Assessment of Program Outcomes

PLEASE NOTE

ALL WORKSHOPS scheduled for September through December have been CANCELLED

New workshops will be scheduled  for early 2018.  More later on the new workshop schedule.

PCHF has a long-standing history in offering training and technical assistance to its grantees in the area of program evaluation as well as sponsoring its own outcome evaluations of key Foundation programs and initiatives.  As of 2017 PCHF requires grantees to report outcome measures in addition to the process measures, such as the number of people served, that they currently provide. Outcome measures can inform PCHF staff whether grantees are contributing to the foundation’s stated vision and goals.

The Assesment of Progam Outcomes training features a time-tested uniform model for identifying, articulating, and measuring program outcomes. In its one-day format, the training is experiential, featuring hands-on practical exercises, a defined six-step model, and an opportunity for participants to map their own evaluation plans specific to their organizations. Supporting methods and tools such as logic models and qualitative evaluation are also addressed. Tangible take-aways include an Evaluation Workbook, which provides background material, print and video references, and a one-page Outcomes Assessment Worksheet.

All current PCHF grantees are required to attend a workshop to ensure continued funding through the Phoenixville Community Health Foundation.

  • For convenience and accessibility multiple workshops have been scheduled throughout the year.
  • All grantee organizations must participate with a team of three people: Executive Director, board member, key staff member.
  • Each workshop date will accommodate a maximum of eight [8] organizational teams.
  • All workshops will be held at the Phoenixville Hospital MOB II Conference Room from 9:00 am to 4:00 p.m. with an hour for an ‘on-your-own’ lunch break. PCHF will provide refreshments, but will not be providing food.

To further assist organizations, optional technical assistance times have been added. These are open sessions for organizations to discuss evaluation barriers within their organization, or to discuss more specifically evaluation processes/procedures.  Please contact us for the dates and times.
