From healthy birth weight to school readiness, Chemung County is on the path to tracking the developmental progress of all children from birth to age 5. The project started years ago with school districts wanting to look at school readiness. They worked with Children's Institute to bring RECAP to Chemung County. With RECAP they looked at assessing social-emotional health and other domains for Pre-K students with a focus on getting kids ready for kindergarden.
Boys & Girls Club of Buffalo, through a Gift of Support from the Cullen Foundation, implemented COMET in conjunction with improved data management practices. Leveraging the operational features to survey program outcomes, take attendance, manage membership and report required information to funders and Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), they use COMET to run their operations and improve them. The organization’s transformed data management practices leverage COMET to achieve better results for the youth served, and all their stakeholders.
