This presentation outlines how the journey of a small Navajo community in Northern Arizona illustrates successful program and evaluation planning. First, how a strengths-based strategic planning process that involves all major community stakeholder groups can outline a set of action steps to make real change. Second, how these actions steps created culturally-specific program plans to address the community needs. And third, how consistent monitoring of objectives through evaluation of these programs is able to show whether true change is occurring to address the community needs.
