We have evaluated over 80 employment programs
We have conducted evaluations for a wide range of organizations and programs including those for Agape Child & Family Services, Inc., the Connecticut Department of Social Services, the Illinois State Board of Education, Los Angeles Urban League, Marin Community Foundation, the state of Missouri, Partnership for the Homeless, United Way, and the YWCA of Memphis.
A few select recent or key employment projects include:
Employment Portfolio, The Robin Hood Foundation
Philliber has evaluated over 65 employment programs supported by the Robin Hood Foundation, tracking the progress of participants through the program and into the labor market. The programs all provided different services including training and employment assistance for homeless men and women, training ambulance drivers, training former addicts to be substance abuse counselors, and training Spanish-speaking immigrants to be home health aides.
Goal Setting Girls, The National Crittenton Foundation Assets for Life program
Goal Setting Girls is a project of The National Crittenton Foundation Assets for Life program, to improve the nutrition, academic achievement, and career development of girls and young women. Goal Setting Girls hopes to equip participating young women with the knowledge and skills needed to set life, education, and career goals. The project’s primary tool is Today, Tomorrow, Forever: My Life Planner, a journal for participants and curriculum for facilitators, produced by Crittenton Services of Greater Washington. Philliber developed their evaluation plan and analyzed their results.
Stepping Stones was a case management program in Kingston, New York, seeking to move difficult-to-employ people into jobs paying a living wage. Philliber provided an evaluation of the progress clients made and the outcomes that were achieved.
The Partnership for the Homeless, The O’Neill Foundation
The Partnership for the Homeless in New York City created its Education Rights Project to serve the educational needs of children in homeless and near-homeless families. These families received intensive case management services and group interventions designed to help them become learning supports for their children and develop advocacy skills to work with their children’s schools. School staff received training to understand and thus better serve, homeless children in their classrooms. Philliber provided assistance to finalize a logic model for the program and to create a data collection system and instruments to support the program’s evaluation.
Thrive Financial Stability Program, United Way of Houston
Philliber evaluated the impact of financial coaching on clients’ progress toward financial stability and performed a return on investment analysis of the collaboration.
