Who We Are

Kaye Implementation & Evaluation was established by Dr. Sarah Kaye in 2012 to conduct research and evaluation in the service of children, youth and families. We are a growing team of dedicated professionals with training and experience in social service and social science. Our team is committed to supporting our partners to advance practice and outcomes through high-quality implementation, research, and evaluation.

What We Do

We partner with child, youth, and family-serving organizations and their stakeholders to support programs to reach their intended outcomes. Our collaborative approach includes:

  • Listening to our partners to understand context and the organization’s goals. 

  • Identifying rigorous and innovative approaches and methods that can meet our partners’ needs. 

  • Discussing evaluation strategies and making decisions together about how best to achieve evaluation goals.

  • Valuing diversity of individuals, perspectives, and expertise.  

  • Working alongside partners throughout study design, execution, interpretation, and reporting to ensure that all evaluation activities are grounded in practice.

Our Partners
