Evidence-Based "Pathways" is the premier conference to educate, inspire, and certify evidence-based professionals and organizations. The program, co-sponsored by Joyfields Institute is designed to help attendees acquire skills in proven approaches commonly referred to as evidence-based. Programs are especially designed so agencies can adapt, not abandon what they are already doing.
Joyfields Institute today introduced an innovative service to help organizations evaluate themselves and their programs to determine how they are performing. The premise is that if staff (parts of the whole) undergo periodic employee evaluations, the organization (the whole) ought to as well. Periodic assessments are especially useful for;
understanding how the organization or program is doing,
uncovering challenges to tackle,
articulating more clearly what actions to take, and why

In September 2015, Somerset County, PA, received a 3-year “Smart Supervision: Reducing Prison Populations, Saving Money, and Creating Safer Communities” grant from the Bureau of Justice Assistance (under the Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs). The goals of this funding program, now known as the “Innovations in Supervision Initiative” (ISI), are to develop and test innovative strategies and implement evidence-based probation and parole approaches. In turn, ISI seeks to improve supervision success rates and increase community safety, by effectively addressing client risk, needs, and recidivism. Receipt of grant funding in Somerset County followed previous successful efforts directed at justice system strategic planning, cross-systems mapping, and implementation of evidence-based approaches.
