Best Starts for Kids has contracted with several organizations and individuals to support organizations in the following areas:
  • understanding and developing performance measurements in alignment with Best Starts evaluation plans 
  • analyzing data needed to report performance measures 
  • understanding and using various methods to collect quantitative and qualitative data, such as surveys, focus groups, and interviews, including support to develop and implement data collection tools 
  • integrating evaluative thinking and continuous quality improvement into program operations   
  • assistance in establishing or improving organizational data infrastructure 
  • adapting data collection strategies to improve cultural relevance 
We are excited to offer these supports in an effort to create a more sustainable nonprofit system in King County.  The volume of requests will affect our ability to address all organizational needs. We may not be able to address all needs immediately or at all. Thank you for your understanding!
