Project Description

Background

The Little Bit Foundation removes obstacles that prevent students living in poverty in the St. Louis area from reaching their academic goals. The foundation provides basic essentials, such as shoes, clothing and hygiene kits to students who may lack access to these items. They also partner with other providers to deliver literacy and health and wellness programming. The Little Bit Foundation requires evaluation tools that it can use and build upon throughout the organization’s lifespan. The Evaluation Center helped the foundation to develop evaluation tools to measure its impact and evaluate programming success.
