Self-Sufficiency Program Participant Services Assessment and Analysis
Project for Pride in Living, Inc. (PPL) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping low-income individuals and families develop the tools they need to achieve self-sufficiency through a broad range of highly integrated programs and services. PPL’s Self-Sufficiency Program (SSP) provides PPL residents across the Twin Cities region with onsite support services to help them sustain stability and gain greater self-reliance. Staff offer a range of support services and links to community resources that help families. This project will highlight what services are most valuable to participants, as well as identify gaps in service. Elizabeth Caulum, a Master of Public Policy graduate student in the Humphrey School, will develop, test and implement a prototype and template for a qualitative research assessment of the Self-Sufficiency Program (SSP). The results will enable staff to understand and demonstrate the effectiveness and value of the program and improve service delivery.
