ANNUAL EVALUATION - YOUR VOICE MATTERS...
Each year, HAPS assesses its therapeutic programs, support groups, and educational sessions by evaluating the level of interest and need reflected by attendance andthrough feedback from clients utilizing HAPS services. Program evaluation is important as it improves program design and implementation by allowing us to identify areas for improvement and adapt activities to ensure they are as effective as they can be. Additionally, evaluation helps capture the impact of the program on the community and provides us with the information we need to communicate this impact to funders.
Through ongoing communication with our client base, we are able to remain relevant and work in partnership to provide programs that foster prolonged mobility, promote functional independence, offer enrichment, and encourage opportunities for social connection. This year's evaluation will be administered online as we attempt to increase the number of responses and reduce printed materials. The evaluation will be open September 1st – November 1st. Responses are recorded anonymously, but please only complete it once. If you prefer a paper evaluation, please contact the HAPS office and one will be provided to you. By completing this evaluation, your feedback allows HAPS to meet your needs and ensures that funding is allocated to programs that have been identified as meaningful priorities for our community.
