National Angels Process Evaluation Report

National Angels process evaluation report cover pageOur research team at the Texas Institute for Child & Family Wellbeing conducted a process evaluation of National Angels programming at the National Angels chapter in Austin, Texas.

The process evaluation sought to identify program strengths and obstacles and determine whether any program components need adjustment. Our researchers interviewed National Angels staff, volunteers, and foster family participants to measure the success of the Love Box and Dare to Dream programs.

Our report on the process evaluation breaks down key findings on how National Angels programming:

  • Meets the needs of foster caregivers and youth in care by providing tangible and emotional supports not offered through traditional service models;
  • Establishes relational permanence by creating relationships between volunteers and foster families;
  • Promotes normalcy for children and youth in foster care, in turn improving social development and wellbeing; and
  • Generates social capital that can help reduce hardships experienced by children and families by providing relationship-based resources to navigate challenges.
