Program Evaluation

Nine Circles Community Health Centre is committed to regular and rigorous evaluation of our programs and services to ensure accessibility, responsiveness and quality. We are equally committed to contributing to local and regional community-based research, to understand and respond to the evolving needs of communities living with, and at risk for Sexually Transmitted and Blood Borne Infections (STBBIs).

At Nine Circles, we evaluate our programs, groups, and services to find out:

  • How well are we serving client needs
  • How well are we providing information and education to our clients
  • If our clients are gaining new skills and access to resources
  • How can we improve our programming

We also evaluate our services to provide funders with information about how well our programs are running and serving client needs.

We gather client feedback through methods such as workshop evaluation questionnaires, focus groups, and client services surveys.
