Mission & Vision


We specialize in high quality evaluation, research, and educational services assisting organizations and communities to improve people’s lives in central California.


As the San Joaquin Community Data Co-Op we are an integrated team of staff, Board members, and organizations which:

  • Think regionally while acting locally to address and support the true needs of communities;
  • Provide clients with outstanding professional services, education and training, data resources, and high quality, technical support services.

We are a non-profit, applied social research and evaluation organization that works with government, non-profit organizations, universities, and businesses. We help clients plan programs, operate more effectively, allocate resources, and evaluate their impact on clients' lives and the greater community.

We partner with our clients to increase the effectiveness of programs and services that benefit the community. We focus our technical assistance on increasing each community’s and organization’s ability to: collect, dialogue, analyze, prioritize, and learn to make decisions based on quality data while enhancing the overall knowledge base of those communities and organizations. 

We provide an impartial and objective look. We focus on accurate, data-driven decisions to build stronger communities and organizations.
