What difference does the CCNI make?

As an innovative program with multiple stakeholders and large potential impact, evaluation of the CCB initiative is particularly important. The CCNI uses a variety of data collection methods (both qualitative and quantitative) to evaluate program process and outcomes.

A critical part of our evaluation is community surveys with residents, administered in 2004 (baseline) 2007 and 2010, and a separate youth-to-youth survey done in 2004 and 2007.

Between 2007 and 2010, the CCNI evaluation found the following successes:

  • Increased social capital
    • Residents are more involved in their neighborhoods
    • Residents have developed linkages :
      • With each other
      • With local community-based organizations and institutions
      • With local government officials
  • Residents have developed skills in organizing and advocacy
  • Residents have taken on more leadership roles (such as running their own meetings)
  • Residents feel better prepared for disasters
  • Residents feel that the City of Oakland is more responsive to them
  • Neighborhood conditions have improved
    • Less blight
    • Renovated parks and open spaces

A comprehensive evaluation report, including outcomes of the 2010 surveys, will be completed and posted July 2011.
