Over the past 30 years, Partners in Housing has been committed to providing the most effective services to support the Partner families in our program. We not only assess outcomes for reporting, but use the measurements for internal evaluation to ensure we continue to evolve in our service delivery. We use many methods of tracking Partners’ hard work and progress and are pleased to share these core outcomes with you!
What it all means:
Housing Nights- The number of nights the families in our program who were experiencing homelessness had a place to call home.
Improved Housing- % of families that successfully moved on to their own stable housing after exiting our one-year Family Self-Sufficiency Program. (The national average for transitional housing is around 65%)
Improved Self-Sufficiency- % of families that improved their overall self-sufficiency showing increased confidence, accountability, and the application of new life skills.
Improved Job Preparedness- % of adults that are more employable after attending our one-on-one Work It! Sessions. In these sessions, clients work on their resume, participate in mock job interviews, take career assessments, and work on building other skills that increase their likelihood of securing that next job opportunity.
Improved Income- % of families that have a higher income exiting our program than when they entered.
Improved Employment- % of families that improved their employment situation. This could be a higher wage, more benefits, and opportunity for advancement.
Improved Education- % of families that improved their formal education. This can range from getting their GED to receiving a college degree. This measure varies based on the families’ needs and ability to start a formal education program.
