NCCD has developed the Data for EquityTM model to help social service nonprofits and other organizations use their programs and services to build capacity, accountability, and sustainability toward increased racial and ethnic equity and reduced racial and ethnic disparities.
The Data for Equity model will:
- Help direct-service organizations collect, analyze, and use their data to evaluate and improve their services and programs;
- Provide clear, concrete evaluative data to funders that clarify whether their grantees are achieving service and program objectives;
- Expand the evidence base of effective solutions that reduce disparate social outcomes for families and communities of color; and
- Ultimately, help ensure that vulnerable individuals in our communities receive the best possible social services so that they do not, at any point, need to enter the child welfare, juvenile justice, or criminal justice systems. This will lessen racial disparities and inequities in those systems.
