Since the grant was awarded, the grant team, RC staff and PSF’s IT department have worked to refine our data collection protocols. With the refinement of our data collection, we can report on new, more profound metrics, and better understand how our Resource Centers are serving children and families in North Central Florida.
As part of our process evaluation, one of the largest refinement efforts to-date was the Strengthening Families Self-Assessment (SFSA) process. Each of the three Gainesville Resource Centers completed the SFSA process which engages direct service staff, community collaborators, and community members in equitable evaluation methods to ensure community voice is continuously heard and incorporated. Based on the discussions from the SFSA process, action items were developed to help aid in the continuous quality improvement of our Network of Resource Centers. This process along with other forthcoming evaluation activities, such as interviews and focus groups, will help us in our ongoing work of refinement and improvement.
