Jacquie Anderson

Senior Research Associate

Jacquie brings over 15 years of program evaluation experience to her role as Senior Research Associate at Harder+Company. She specializes in evaluating programs and community initiatives designed to end homelessness, improve workforce outcomes for low-income families and youth, reduce recidivism, and strengthen the delivery of health and mental health care. Much of her work focuses on systems change initiatives that align the work of multiple public agencies and nonprofit providers serving vulnerable individuals and families. Over the span of her career, Jacquie has worked with multiple stakeholders to design innovative and cost-effective evaluations that meet the needs of service providers and their funders while minimizing the impact on program operations and participants. She is especially skilled at clearly communicating evaluation results to diverse audiences and explaining complex evaluation methodologies to non-researchers.

Prior to joining Harder+Company, Jacquie was the Senior Program Manager for Research and Evaluation at the Corporation for Supportive Housing. While there, she directed CSH’s national research activities and helped local partners with evaluation design and data analysis. Prior to CSH, she was a researcher for MDRC, where she managed the west-coast implementation of a large, multi-site federal demonstration project. Jacquie is an active community volunteer. For many years, Jacquie served on the Board of the East Bay Community Recovery Project and now leads fundraising efforts at her daughter’s elementary school.
