Children and Family Futures provides training and technical assistance on evaluation methods, data access, collection and analysis, and performance measurement systems to help tribes, states, counties, and community agencies build their capacity to become data-driven. Our evaluation- and performance measurement-related assistance has focused on early childhood development (including cognitive and school readiness), child and family services, community development, health issues, educational services, and cultural competence.

Evaluation and performance monitoring are at the heart of improving programs and systems. High-performing programs and systems use data and feedback to continually assess progress, ensure accountability, and make policy and practice changes to better serve children and families.
