The goal of the A Call to Service Faith-Based Initiative is to increase the capacity of faith-based organizations to collaboratively design, implement and evaluate non-school hour programs for children in Detroit. The purpose of the evaluation is fourfold:

  • to enable the Foundation to assess the effectiveness of its programmatic approach toward faith-based service delivery
  • to assist the funded organizations as they seek to improve their programs and steward the resources of the Foundation
  • to increase the capacity of the organizations to use their evaluation findings to improve their services
  • to promote shared learning among the key evaluation stakeholders
