At Evidence Based Associates, we identify, introduce, and rigorously implement programs that have met the highest standards of evidence as identified by the scientific community. EBA helps public agencies introduce and manage programs that produce the best outcomes for at-risk youth and their families while improving public safety at substantially reduced costs — both financial and human.
In its role as Service Coordinator (aka Managing Entity or ‘general contractor’) and partnering with juvenile justice, child welfare and behavioral health agencies, EBA can assess the current service array and provide strategic recommendations for becoming more evidence-based: EBA can also follow up on those analyses and recommendations, implementing the most appropriate evidence-based program(s) that can address the biggest social service challenges facing today’s leaders. In other words, EBA recognizes that ‘doing the right thing’ by selecting evidence based programs is only one step in system transformation. EBA also ensures that ‘it is done right’ by closely monitoring delivery through strict oversight of providers by mandating fidelity adherence of all program elements.
A team of professionals with backgrounds in social services, juvenile justice, evidence-based programs, information technology and human resources, EBA’s multi-faceted team brings more than 150 years of experience in overseeing clinical services, public policy and program management.
