We partnered with Anchoring Success to refresh the design of our three programs and to develop practices to measure program successes. Dr. Alfaro understood our vision and mission for serving children , youth , and parents living in extremely challenging circumstances. Dr. Alfaro has done an outstanding job keeping the program design and evaluation work authentic to who we are. We will be using the tools that Anchoring Success developed not just for coordinating and evaluating our programs but also for communicating with new volunteers, staff, and funders. This has been such a great experience.Richard Burrell
I enjoyed your presentation yesterday and you gave us such great resources! It was better than I ever expected. I actually thought it was going to be boring…. Just because of the topic. Boy, was I ever wrong!! Thank you [Anchoring Success] for a fantastic presentation and the beautifully designed bag!Rosemary Avalos
Dr. Alfaro worked with my team to refine two program structures — a re-entry program and volunteer program. She focused on leveraging my organization’s existing strengths and the talents of my staff team. She also honored my team’s authentic client-centered approach and made sure to help us to measure and celebrate our program impact. Dr. Alfaro is organized, prompt, and we work with her as if she was a member of our team, providing mutual feedback which was received well. It’s hard to find partners that are passionate about the work without having a big ego about it.Coreen Campos
When working with Morghan I felt as though I had invited an expert from the community to be part of our team. Her ability to connect with stakeholders, structure studies that incorporated context-specific engagement strategies, and summarize so plainly the results of our work was a tremendous asset. She is one of the most skilled researchers I have ever worked with!Phil Skei
