“This was one of the first times we have used an infographic to tell the story of our data. Elissa was great in walking us through the process. She was flexible, responsive and attentive to our needs.”
"When showing it to the community, they were delighted to see THEIR work and THEIR words in this beautiful design that both displays their intention and their work as a community. I have the map pasted on the window right in front of my desk as it keeps me grounded in what the community work is about and how to help manifest this work through our partnerships (existing and new) at SRFC. The more our board works with this, the more they will identify with pieces of the map where they have influence to change systems that perpetuate that which no longer serves children, youth and families and practitioners in our communities."
“In working with nonprofits evaluating their programs these past 25 years, I have never had a client as happy as my client after using Elissa’s graphic version of their logic model. I had both a narrative version and Elissa’s graphic version of their logic model describing the relationship between their program outcomes and activities. Once they saw the graphic version they never referred back to the narrative. After the meeting one of the staff members commented how she appreciated the logic model graphic because she ‘never understood the narrative.”
