This year, evaluation of Family Place was enhanced
Each program is now monitored for its
effectiveness in order to make data-
driven program changes. The CLVC is also
critically examining the overall current
program offerings and surveying parents
to determine the needs of community
members. The CLVC has determined
four primary areas of focus for adult
programming in 2014:
family literacy,
parenting, ESL and financial literacy.
