About Us

Our Expertise

Midwest Evaluation and Research, LLC works to make the lives of the most at-risk people better. We do this by working exclusively with not-for-profit entities that serve disempowered and disenfranchised populations across the United States to make them better at what they do.

Starting with program evaluation and research as our core activity, we quickly realized that our partners needed access to more talent and services to maximize their impact and effectiveness.

Our Values

Client Commitment

We work collaboratively in true partnerships with our clients to meet and exceed their needs. Our dedication and rigor are balanced with flexibility and transparency, which set us apart from other companies. We bring passion for making non-profits more impactful and influential.


Mutual Support

We foster an environment of trust by holding each other accountable and cultivating a Circle of Safety where all staff speak freely and have an equal voice. We uphold direct, clear, and open communication. High expectations are balanced by respect for the employee as a whole person.


Learning Orientation

Driven by possibility and curiosity, and skilled in using data to inform strategy, we believe in continuous improvement. We endure discomfort, accept risk, and expect mistakes because we embrace failure as a tool for learning. Effort and growth, rather than results, are the measures of success.
