Phase II Executive Summary. Evaluation of the Child and Family Resource Program (CFRP).
Nauta, Marrit J.; And Others
This report presents preliminary findings based on the first full year of the Child and Family Resource Program (CFRP) evaluation, begun in the fall of 1978. The analyses described in this report are intended to provide answers to four major questions: (1) What is the nature of the CFRP and how do programs vary from site to site? (2) To what extent have the CFRP components (infant/toddler, Head Start, and preschool/school linkage) been implemented to date? (3) What is the process of individualizing services to meet family needs and developing action plans for services to be obtained through CFRP? and (4) Is there evidence that CFRP's have had an impact on families after 6 months of participation in comparison to a group of families not enrolled in CFRP? Following the first chapter's introductory overview of the CFRP objectives and evaluation, chapter 2 addresses the first two questions, while chapter 3 offers comment on the remaining two questions. The fourth and concluding chapter provides a discussion of future study issues and preliminary plans for the CFRP evaluation's third phase. (MP)
