Measuring Health-Related Outcomes of Community Development
Success Measures has developed and tested 65 new measurement tools to evaluate the health-related outcomes of community development work. With these tools and supporting technical assistance, organizations will be able to:
- Evaluate health-related outcomes of their community development work
- Better articulate how their activities, programs, and strategies (e.g. housing, community engagement, and neighborhood revitalization) benefit residents' health
- More explicitly promote the health benefits of these programs
- More clearly communicate to staff, board, community members and funders the connections between community development work and health

The health tools are offered through subscription to the Success Measures Data System
, a web-based platform which houses the tools and helps subscribers efficiently manage and conduct all phases of evaluation online, from data collection to analysis and reporting. Within the system, the tools, included in both English and Spanish, can be used as-is or easily customized for users’ programs and evaluation. All the resulting data, resources and findings are then permanently stored and accessible in one secure online environment.
