Con Mi MADRE Program Profile

Project: Building Evidence Technical Assistance

available downloads

Con Mi MADRE provides students and their mothers in the Austin, Texas, area—primarily Latinas—the resources and support they need to navigate the educational pipeline to postsecondary success and beyond.

This resource summarizes Con Mi MADRE’s activities, accomplishments, and evaluation readiness. Being evaluation ready means a program has the knowledge, skills, and practices to test the effectiveness of its services. Con Mi MADRE has critical evaluation building blocks in place:

  • A fully articulated logic model that shows the pathways between services and expected outcomes
  • Fidelity tools to measure performance and determine whether services are delivered as intended
  • A data system to collect, track, and organize information

The Annie E Casey Foundation invested in Con Mi MADRE as part of its Expanding Evidence portfolio. Expanding Evidence supports programs developed by leaders of color for communities of color. JBA provided Con Mi MADRE with technical assistance to build evaluation capacity.
