Welcome to the Core Elements Self-Assessment!
We long to care for children in ways that honor Jesus. This includes ensuring our care is excellent. In order to offer the best available care for children and families, we need to move beyond good intentions alone to include evidence of what works. And yet, most programs won't have the capacity to engage independent evaluators to audit their programs each year. That's where the Core Elements Self-Assessment can quickly and easily meet the need of showing you your program's strengths and areas for growth- as well as point you in the right direction of further resources for support and improvement.
This self-assessment tool is for organizations (NGOs) serving vulnerable children and families around the world and is part of the broader Core Elements of Success in OVC Care Program. The Core Elements program distills much of today’s best global OVC guidance, refined with input from NGOs, researchers, field experts, and other leaders. The Self-Assessment will give you a snapshot of your program’s strengths and opportunities for growth related to 21 key areas (The Core Elements) that impact the quality of care you provide, ensuring you can do the very best for vulnerable children and families. Ideally, it will be used in conjunction with the Core Elements eCourses and other curated resources within the Core Elements of Success in OVC Care Program.
