Program Logic Models
What is a program logic model?
A program logic model is a picture of how a program works. It depicts what a program is supposed to do (that is, how, for whom, and why) and how the pieces fit together. There are many ways to make a logic model. But, in general, a logic model fits onto one page and shows the link between the parts of the program using directional arrows to show the expected order of events and results (e.g., you need to secure office space before you provide joint counselling sessions to individuals and their families).
