How to Develop a Theory of Change and Logic Model for Your Kinship Navigator Program

A white grandfather watches as his young granddaughter carefully plays with something small on top of a large open book

This guide, written by Sarah Prendergast of the Urban Institute and Karin Malm of Child Trends, provides kinship navigator program developers and evaluators with instructions to assist them in the development of a theory of change and a logic model. It offers a four-step framework for crafting a theory of change, explains how a logic model can be created using a theory of change, and discusses how program evaluation can be applied to test both the logic model and the theory of change.

Child Trends is one of the primary partners of the Grandfamilies & Kinship Support Network.
