Examples: Please see the W.K. Kellogg Foundation Logic Model Development Guide and COA’s PQI Tool Kit for more information on developing and using program logic models.
Examples: Information that may be used to inform the development of the program logic model includes, but is not limited to:
needs assessments and periodic reassessments;
risks assessments conducted for specific interventions; and
the best available evidence of service effectiveness.
Examples: CA-YIL services can addresses the attainment of foundational, short-term, achievable outcomes that lay groundwork for longer-term positive outcomes. Depending on age, time in program, and other factors, outcomes such as school graduation or training completion can either be immediate or can begin with improving on test scores or reading at or above grade level. Steps toward achieving economic self-sufficiency can include achieving such financial growth goals as completing a financial education program, understanding and obtaining a good credit rating, or building a savings account.
The logic model identifies client outcomes in at least two of the following areas:
change in clinical status;
change in functional status;
health, welfare, and safety;
permanency of life situation;
quality of life;
achievement of individual service goals; and
other outcomes as appropriate to the program or service population.
