As part of the Sara Lee Foundation Chicago Spirit Award, CURL worked with one of the oldest settlement houses in Chicago to: 1) facilitate a comprehensive programmatic participatory evaluation process; and 2) develop education and training services that include participation in the Philanthropy and Nonprofit Sector Graduate Certificate Program and a seminar on human resources. 

Education and training sessions for staff were held.  Erie Neighborhood House began to develop an evaluation and strategic planning process.
