Core Elements of Success in OVC Care
Benchmark Practices for Improving Outcomes of Children Together
The new CAFO “Core Elements” self-assessment tool is designed for leaders of CAFO member organization. It enables a swift, customized review of current program strengths and opportunities for growth.
Your own “Core Elements” results will be proprietary to you. In time, you will also be provided with aggregate (non-identifiable) data on trends across all CAFO member organizations.
Ultimately, the “Core Elements” will serve not only to strengthen your work, but also to elevate the reputation and quality of faith-based care for vulnerable children worldwide.
We welcome you as an essential part of this journey as the CAFO community engages this self-analysis, learning and improvement together!
