what we do

Our  Vision and Mission

To build a world free of health, education, criminal justice and economic inequities by using data to mobilize communities and create social change.

The Measure  CARE Model

Traditional evaluation fails to meet the needs of the people most impacted by inequity. It’s time for a new approach that puts community members at the front of research and evaluation.

The Measure CARE Model works so communities can create solutions based on their unique needs and goals. We Can Now used the Measure CARE model to measure their food distribution efforts in Central Texas. Together we can build a more equitable world one community at a time.
