• Description

The Mid-America Institute on Poverty is conducting a three year (12/30/1999 - 12/30/2002) evaluation of Century Services employment activities and social business enterprise model. The goals of the evaluation are to provide: a clear understanding of the social business enterprise partnership model, real time information on the enterprise's impact on employees so that management may make adjustments in implementation as necessary, and outcomes-based understanding of the Century Services model as an intervention designed to improve the attitude of employees toward work, help employees develop work skills, and increase the labor force attachment of hard to employ persons.
