Facente Consulting was contracted to serve as the lead evaluator for this local mental-health focused impact evaluation, with a primary responsibility for designing and implementing a local evaluation plan, managing IRB approvals and human subject concerns, overseeing data collection, and conducting a quantitative analysis of local participant data.
Faente Consulting worked with community-based organizations representing five priority populations (Blacks/African Americans, Latines, trans women, people who inject drugs, and people experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity) to develop town hall events and community-focused materials to disseminate information and gather community feedback about San Francisco’s plan to End the HIV, Hepatitis C, and STI epidemics.
The LGBTQ Connection hired Facente Consulting to provide advanced statistical support for the impact evaluation of their local intervention under the California Reducing Disparities Project, intended to reduce mental health disparities for young LGBTQ+ people in the Napa and Santa Rosa areas of California.
Openhouse hired Facente Consulting to lead a strategic planning process designed to shift the organization’s emphasis toward a deliberate focus on LGBTQ+ seniors who have been forced to demonstrate the greatest resilience despite longstanding structural and individual racism, classism, homophobia, and/or transphobia.
Facente Consulting supported the San Francisco Community Health Center to design and implement a six-session community of practice that brought together community-based organizations, health departments, and other agencies in the Midwest United States for peer-to-peer learning to improve HIV-related service delivery to trans people in the US.
