Working with the Department of Health and Human Services in several states, Real Alternatives is a charitable organization responsible for administering the Pregnancy and Parenting Support Services program. The program has been recognized as one of the area’s most innovative nonprofit organizations. Real Alternatives was selected as a finalist for its state-of-the-art Automated Program Outcomes Measure. This innovation tracks the results of each client interaction. Because the outcomes are measurable, program analysis is more efficient and accurate, and critical data is available to identify program enhancements.
Sponsored by the Central Pennsylvania Business Journal, the Nonprofit Innovation Awards are held each year to recognize local 501(c)(3) organizations who have demonstrated innovation in their daily operations. Finalists can be selected for recognition in one of five categories including brand identity/unique marketing, management operations, programs, collaboration, and nonprofit leadership excellence.
