09-25-2013 14:52

The findings from a collaborative, multiple design, process and outcomes evaluation of a Habitat for Humanity (HFH) project are reported. Background: Habitat for Humanity is a widely known, charitable housing organization that builds affordable housing in partnership with families in need. Evaluation questions: What problems were experienced by partner family adult members, their resident children, and HFH volunteers with an HFH project's implementation? What were the project's social and financial outcomes? Data and Methods: Utilizing multiple, varying time series, process and outcomes evaluation designs, baseline evidence was gathered from participants in a local, Houston area HFH project, including members of the local board of directors, volunteers, faith-based stakeholders, construction workers, partner family adults and their children. The evaluation was designed collaboratively with project participants working with professional evaluators. Follow-up data are now being gathered. Discussion: Both the collaboration and evaluation results are discussed.
