Funded Service Provider Accountability

Evaluation is an important component of the Strategic Plan and the Proposition 10 implementation process in Kern County. Carefully tracked and reported information details program outcomes and the impact on the communities served.

Equally important, an effective evaluation program provides critical information to help continually improve the Commission’s efforts to better the health and well-being of children and families throughout Kern County.
