emPower Tools

The Capacity Collective has developed a series of handouts on data-related tools, resources and processes. If you are a client of The Capacity Collective, we encourage you to use and share these resources within your organizations, and to other social service agencies in Washington, especially if they can be used to support groups who have traditionally not had access to these types of support, or forms of training.

The handouts are organized into series. Click on the title of a handout to download as a PDF. We can also arrange a time to meet with your staff and provide training on these topics. Contact us to learn more!
