Full Description

A grant from the Foundation will support SKETCH in developing and implementing a new framework for its programming, engaging its client base throughout the process, and utilizing developmental evaluation to track progress and make ongoing adjustments to its model. This will allow SKETCH to better serve its client base; more clearly measure and articulate the connection between services and resulting outcomes; and continue to increase its impact.
