Maryfrances Porter, Ph.D.


At Partnerships for Strategic Impact we use science to directly advance evidence-based and data-driven planning and programming in the localities and the State of Virginia. Building on the existing strengths, we rigorously assess needs and strengths, and test effectiveness of organizations, programming, initiatives and policies to improve implementation and create sustainable change. Partnerships for Strategic Impact provides capacity-building consultation and deliverables for non-profits, community change initiatives and corporations. We specialize in developing and connecting strategic planning, programming and measuring impact. We use assessment, outcome measurement and program evaluation to determine what is needed, how well and in what ways organizations, programs and policies are working, and by supporting effective coalitions and collaborations. Our team is dedicated to working with clients to develop high-quality, culturally-competent assessments and evaluations, conducted with minimal disruption to service provision and productivity. We produce succinct, easy-to-understand deliverables with direct, actionable value. We understand that our clients work in dynamic environments in which changes in funding, leadership or community conditions may impact the course of an assessment or evaluation. Additionally, the very process of conducting an assessment or evaluation may lead clients to realize that a change to the project, or even a reconceptualization of the work plan, is needed. Our team is responsive and flexible to changing conditions, we are able to creatively make work plan adjustments within the existing budget, and as necessary, we provide concrete, supplemental work plans and budgets. Our goal is to provide specific, useful deliverables through efficient and responsive methodologies.
