BEC Program((L-R) Anita Baker, Ed.D., Consultant for the BEC Program; Elizabeth Pond Reza, M.S.P.M., Grants Manager for The Salvation Army, and Lynn Naughton, M.S. HS-CP, Director of Operations for the Marshall House, recognize progress made participating in this year's cohort.)

HARTFORD - Marshall House's Sheltering Services Evaluation Project was one of the many projects displayed and recognized during this year's progress presentation day for the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving's (HFPG) Nonprofit Support Program's (NSP) Building Evaluation Capacity Program. Those organizations in attendance displayed their customized evaluation designs that were created as part of this program and shared how they plan to implement their evaluation in the coming year. Several previous graduates from the program were also in attendance as alumni, sharing their ongoing evaluation work since they began participating in this program. From here, The Salvation Army's Marshall House will engage in implementation of its selected evaluation project, which encompasses an intensive three-month period of assessment through surveys, interviews and data collection.

Through the BEC, the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has provided a tremendous amount of support, providing classroom learning, hands-on assignments, and project-based learning over the past 6 months to prepare for this assessment. Specifically, by participating in this program, The Salvation Army was able to enhance its knowledge of evaluation, develop the evaluation plan centered on its Marshall House program, and apply evaluative thinking skills to multiple organizational tasks.

The BEC Program is designed to help Greater Hartford area nonprofits build evaluation capacity and utilize evaluative thinking on an organization-wide basis. This program, which is being conducted over an 18-month period, will continue to provide individual consultation and periodic training sessions as Marshall House, along with other nonprofits, implement its evaluation design and assesses results. The Salvation Army is thankful for being able to participate in this valuable program provided to the community.
