The Healthy Living Collaborative (HLC) strives to foster a model of collective impact to effectively tackle systemic barriers that challenge communities. HLC invites and supports cross-sector partnerships as a key driver of creating healthy neighborhoods and communities with partners representing healthcare, public health, social services, education, housing, a tribal nation and more. Tracking and measuring the nature of the collaborative is essential to HLC partners’ work together and HLC continually evaluates its efforts to ensure maximum impact.
For the third year of the evaluation, the Center for Outcomes Research and Education (CORE) and the HLC evaluation committee identified the following aims:
1) Assess how the collaborative and its partnerships have evolved in terms of connectivity, trust, and value, and measure progress on priority areas and integration with Southwest Accountable Community of Health (SWACH).
2) Assess capacity-building and empowerment of Community Health Workers/Advocates (CHW/CHAs). Evaluated the CHW work using semi-structured interviews.
