First 5 LA is seeking to contract with an individual or organization to co-design and co-implement a process and outcome evaluation of the L.A. Care partnership with Help Me Grow (HMG) LA, including data collection support and data analysis. The primary purpose of the evaluation is to capture implementation learnings for scale and replication, sustainability, and accountability purposes. The evaluation should provide insights into implementation progress and fidelity to the HMG model, challenges, and emerging promising practices and solutions, taking into account differences between clinic sites and the populations they serve. Secondly, the evaluation, to the extent possible, in the final year should investigate effectiveness, as well as inform how the L.A. Care partnership complements core components of HMG LA.
