How we can help:
CERCA thrives in the controlled chaos of community work. The organization is centered in the creativity and knowledge of vast research methodologies to develop rigorous quasi-experimental evaluations, which are often needed when working in "real world" settings. CERCA researchers also have experience in coalition building and collaboration, strategic planning, as well as participatory action research. CERCA works toward building community capacity via utilizing empowering evaluation methods and ensuring various stakeholders, who often have divergent agendas, can all come together to support evaluation efforts.
