Connect. Learn. Community.
Coco Canary is an evaluation firm that uses community-centric and culturally responsive practices. We help our clients define their purpose, describe their impact, and communicate their results through data storytelling and creative reporting. We deeply care about social justice and recognize the systematic structures in place that harm BIPOC communities. This is why we use a culturally responsive framework and a racial equity lens in all the work we do. It is important to hold ourselves and our clients accountable. We do this by educating when we can, pushing back when needed, and speaking up when necessary.

While we have only one employee (who brings 20+ years of experience at a large firm), we draw on an ever-increasing team of partners, collaborators, and contractors. Project types, topics, and methods vary widely, though we specialize in child mental health and well-being. Current and recent projects have been conducted with the State of MN, counties, community collaboratives, school districts, and non-profits. Areas of growth/focus include equity-driven evaluation, application of knowledge translation and implementation science frameworks, and data-driven decision-making.
