Our self sufficiency matrix helps evaluate our client's overall stability
Midtown's self-sufficiency matrix allows us to break down the complex and interdependent factors that impact an individuals health, wealth, and happiness into measurable statistics that we use to make decisions and promote success.
- Self-sufficiency is broken down into 19 unique domains
- Each domain is objectively graded on a scale of 1-5
- Grades measure the success of both the client and the program
Why use a self-sufficiency matrix?
Self-sufficiency matrices are used to measure the impact and outcomes of social programs all over the United States. Studies have shown that organizations who use a self-sufficiency matrix see a statistically significant increase in positive outcomes.
We use data to navigate our clients to success, analyze our services effectiveness, and guide our programming
Identify client resources and needs
Our case workers use the matrix at intake to identify overall well-being and determine which domains are most critical to the client's success.
Measure client progress over time
Our case workers administer the matrix quarterly until the program is complete, allowing us to understand how our clients improve over time.
Assess the effectiveness of our services
We review the matrices to determine what services are working well, what can be optimized, and re-evaluate an approach if it's not effective.
Improve how we direct our resources
The matrices allow us to understand how our programs perform and impact how we invest our resources into programs and services.
Our mission is to empower our clients
We evaluate our client's self sufficiency during the on-boarding process and then administer the matrix quarterly until the program is complete.
We use these evaluations to guide the client's programming and move them toward Level 5 Empowerment across all 19 metrics.
