Large-or small-scale, evaluation is a vital part of building or sustaining any initiative. As accountability standards become more common, many funders now require evaluation to be a part of any proposal. It is important for a thoughtful evaluation plan to be developed in this proposal phase, since an underdeveloped evaluation plan can be difficult to implement when the funding finally comes through. This can hinder the success of your initiative overall and not optimize the full potential of what evaluations can offer.
But never fear, we are here to help! Here at Hub Solutions (a Canadian Observatory on Homelessness social enterprise), part of our mandate is to build capacity within the homelessness sector.
