Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Goals of our program include offering programs and services to meet the needs of our community.

Hunkapi monitors our programs and outcomes regularly to ensure that we are offering services meeting the needs of our community.

Our program offers four-legged therapists, a seasoned executive director, well-trained and committed staff and volunteers, and a continued relationship with Arizona State University. Our program continues to be based on research and promotes the growth of our industry by offering an equine course at ASU as well as accepting college interns in our program.

Our program was born out of research and continues to be research based today. Growth in participants served and demand for our programs continues each year. Our intention is to continue to offer programs to current individuals, families, and community partners as well as to offer services to additional community members.

Data
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
