Evaluability Assessment and Technical Assistance to Expand Generation Hope

The Annie E. Casey Foundation has long supported two-generation programs like Generation Hope that aim to lift families out of poverty. In Washington, DC, Generation Hope simultaneously works with teen parents to help them graduate from college and with their children to prepare them for kindergarten.

JBA will complete two phases of work to support the potential expansion of Generation Hope beyond the nation’s capital:

  • Evaluability assessment phase: We will conduct document reviews and semistructured interviews to understand program strengths and needs.
  • Technical assistance phase: We will help the program build on its successes and prepare for evaluation and scale-up.
