Apr 01, 2017
  • Description

The David and Lucile Packard Foundation's Children, Families and Communities program is investing in exploratory projects to learn more about informal care settings. The overall goal of this work is to test strategies to provide information to family, friends, and neighbors (FFN), or informal caregivers, connect them with resources as well as each other, and support them in providing quality care for young children. Harder+Company Community Research, in partnership with the Center for Evaluation Innovation, conducted an evaluation of four informal care grants with an emphasis on learning from and with grantees, and using evaluation tools to support and strengthen the projects.
