RESEARCH & EVALUATION UNIT (R&E)
Research and Evaluation Unit seeks to build the capacity of SSG programs and our community partners in using data effectively for their program planning, policy advocacy and organizational development. We have experience in conducting evaluation for different type of programs, including health, education, job training, youth development, and community organizing. We have both on-the-ground experience in training community members to design and conduct research in their own community and a track record of conducting community assessments for larger institutions, such as hospitals, clinics, and foundations. Currently R&E provides technical assistance in research and evaluation for grantees of First 5 LA and the California Community Foundation.
