BRC is working with the Children’s Services Council (CSC) of Palm Beach County to estimate the social return on investment (SROI) of the CSC’s programs. The analyses are based on the costs and social benefits of the CSC’s investments in early childhood education, professional development and quality improvement, family supports, and other programs. Benefits are calculated by reviewing the most recent literature on outcomes and economic┬ábenefits of each of the CSC’s program, adjusting for local costs. The resulting analyses will be used to help identify the most effective ways for the CSC to invest its funding and to communicate the value of the CSC’s programs to stakeholders.
