This case study describes the evaluation of a multi-site, decade-long community change effort by the Annie E. Casey Foundation that aimed to improve outcomes for the most vulnerable children by transforming their neighborhoods and helping their parents achieve economic stability, connect with better services and supports, and forge strong social networks. The case study explores a myriad of issues related to the challenges of evaluating comprehensive community initiatives and keeping the evaluation relevant as the program evolved.
