What Works

An evidence base including lessons learned and insights from community programs can help researchers and organizations both collaborate and amplify their positive impact.

There is often little or no research that is both well‐suited to meet the needs of unique populations and appropriate for the organization and local community setting. This situation is especially common when it comes to the promotion of positive outcomes over the prevention of negative ones. Most funding addresses specific problems, like substance abuse, mental illness, domestic violence, incarceration rates, or delinquency. Showcasing process and positive outcomes, like school success or social responsibility, and specifically what works in local jurisdictions, promotes collaborative sharing of program findings, evaluations, results, and knowledge.
