There is a renewed sense of urgency to alleviate human suffering and public attention has increased its focus on corporate philanthropy and social investing. Likewise, non-profit organizations find themselves under greater pressure to dem- strate impact and the demand for greater `transparency' on the donor community and government agencies now require a more transparent accounting of spending on social programs that support the disenfranchised. This book is intended to be a guide for Community Health Care Programs interested in enhancing their lo- term sustainability through the appropriate use of their evaluation results. The book has been designed for ease of use and provides step-by-step guidance on all aspects of basic evaluation methods. For the last twenty years, The Johnson & Johnson Community Health Care Program has awarded funding to more than 150 pioneering non-profit organizations for unique projects that address disparities in America's delivery of health care to poor and underserved citizens. By supporting essential, community-based health care organizations, the program helps to break down health care barriers for me- cally underserved populations by improving their access to quality services.
