DataSpark Partners with United Way to Provide TA to Grantees
DataSpark is in its second year of partnership with United Way of Rhode Island to provide data consulting, technical assistance, and support for program evaluation to the agency's ~40 grantee organizations. We have provided TA to individual grantee organizations and cohorts grouped around issues such as Financial Success, Housing, School Readiness, and College and Career Readiness. Our work has helped grantees better collect, analyze, and share data on their program's outcomes, and has helped cohorts identify areas where collaborative work is needed for systemic change. At the end of the 3-year project, our support will help the United Way demonstrate the value of their investments in terms of program and cohort-level outcomes for Rhode Islanders.
