The evaluation team at Via Evaluation is a group of highly-qualified, engaged individuals who love helping people understand data and programming. We pride ourselves on matching evaluation methods to your needs and situation, and follow the tenets of utilization-focused evaluation. Maybe your program needs a logic model. We do that. Or, maybe your program requires an extensive outcome evaluation. We do that. Or, perhaps your school district wants to better understand risk behaviors of students. We do that, too. We offer a wide range of evaluative services so that we can apply our skills to help our clients improve services and outcomes. When you work with us, you will gain a better understanding of evaluation and data, and have access to a team that applies rigorous, up-to-date methods to provide insight and meaningful recommendations.
