Resilience Ability to thrive in the face of tough times and constant change. The Sustenance Cluster The Engagement Cluster The Adaptation Cluster The Opportunity Cluster
What Levels of Intervention are being Funded? Number of UW Programs Number of RoP MYG programs Sustenance: Meeting Basic Needs 31 Adaptation: Coping Skills and Abilities 5114 Opportunities: Economic Opportunities 10 Engagement: Active Participation in Society 379 Linking: Programs that work on3 or 4 levels at once 162 Notes: Programs self-selected their level of intervention, so these figures do not necessarily imply anything about UW or RoP intention. It may be that agencies didn’t understand the intended meaning of the Opportunities cluster.
What Kinds of Programs Are being Funded (samples)? 1) Supportingseniors to be healthy and live independently UW gives fewer, smaller grants to small agencies that work on adaptation and engagement. Regional Multi-year grants fund very little. 3). Supporting people who are vulnerable and susceptible to abuse, esp. women and children UW funds a wide range of counseling and prevention programs and services, and a smaller number targeted specifically at victims. Region funds primarily adaptation programs. 4). Supporting people affected by mental health issues UW and Region give several large grants to counseling programs
Revising the Population Results Statements: Emerging Recommendations Reword using stronger “results” language, e.g.: – From: Supporting people affected by mental health issues – To something like: People have access to the supports that ensure mental health – From: Supporting people who are vulnerable and susceptible to abuse, especially women and children. – To something like: Abuse is prevented and the negative effects of abuse are minimized.
Revising the More Specific Results Statements: Emerging Recommendations 3). Supporting people who are vulnerable and susceptible to abuse, especially women and children; add: Children demonstrate healthy social and emotional development and positive social behaviors appropriate to their development level Improved emotional and mental health of survivors of sexual violence and abuse.
Revising the More Specific Results Statements: Emerging Recommendations 4). Supporting people affected by mental health issues Combine: 4.1 Improved emotional and mental health of children, youth, adults and seniors 4.2 Earlier intervention, support and access to service Add: Increased coping skills
Revising the More Specific Results Statements: Emerging Recommendations 5). Supporting newcomers and immigrants to fully integrate into community life; add: Clarity around the role of United Way and Region in supporting employment for newcomers
Revising the More Specific Results Statements: Emerging Recommendations 6). Assisting families and children to have a high quality of life Add: Children and youth are not isolated; have more social support Children and youth are self-confident Reword: Children and youth are safe
How Might The Information Presented Today Help You? Linking Program Outcomes to Community Results
Results Based Accountability is made up of two parts: Performance Accountability about the well-being of CUSTOMER POPULATIONS For Programs – Agencies – and Service Systems Population Accountability about the well-being of WHOLE POPULATIONS For Communities – Cities – Counties – States - Nations
Many of you have seen a measurement planning table like this one …. Outcome Objective Evaluation Question Measurement Indicators Data CollectionMeth ods Data Analysis Plan
Program Name: ___________________________ quantityquality effort How much did we do?How well did we do it? effect Is anybody better off?
INDICATOR WORKSHEET: Program Name: ___________________________ quantityquality effort How much did we do? - # of people served - # of sessions held How well did we do it? -% of participants “very satisfied” -% of staff turnover -% of participants who complete course effect Is anybody better off? -% of participants who have returned to school -% of participants capable of performing CPR (pre vs. post)
Contribution relationship Alignment of measures THE LINKAGE Between POPULATION and PERFORMANCE POPULATION ACCOUNTABILITY Healthy Births Rate of low birth-weight babies Stable Families Rate of child abuse and neglect Children Ready for School Percent fully ready per K-entry assessment CUSTOMER RESULTS # of investigations completed % initiated within 24 hrs of report # repeat Abuse/ Neglect % repeat Abuse/ Neglect PERFORMANCE ACCOUNTABILITY Child Welfare Program POPULATION RESULTS
Newcomers and immigrants thrive and integrate into community life:What do we know about this population result in Peel? From Federico at the Peel Data Centre: – Recent immigrants are more likely to live in poverty – Recent immigrants who are also visible minorities are at even higher risk of poverty, and their poverty is more likely to persist over time
Newcomers and immigrants thrive and integrate into community life:What do we know about this population result in Peel? From Our Analysis of United Way and regional Investments: – Both funders support a wide range of programs that focus on adaptation an engagement – Together, they invest 3.5 million towards this outcome – Many of these programs are universal, and a few are targeted specifically for immigrants – Programs tend to focus on adaptation (skills) and community engagement; they are less likely to focus on family dynamics or employment.
How you might use this info to focus your evaluation plan? How much did we do?How well did we do it? Is anybody better off?
Small Group Exercise 1.Find someone at your table who can describe a real, existing program that is intended to contribute to “ Newcomers and immigrants thriving and integrating into community life” 2.What indicators might be used to show who is better off as a result of this program? What might show the contribution this program makes to the community result?
