Local Interagency Linkage Team Follow-Up Report. Ohio At-Risk Linkage Team Project.
The Ohio At-Risk Linkage Team Project focused on strengthening state and local linkages of programs and services offered to at-risk persons. The state linkage team provided leadership for local-level interagency linkage development. In April 1990 and October 1991, two workshops trained 29 local linkage teams. The resulting action plans specified team membership, priority needs, target audience, purpose, objectives, evaluation criteria, products, and dissemination plan. Most team objectives related to providing or enhancing client services. Follow-up progress information was collected in three ways: a June 1991 meeting; a survey of workshop attendees, which received 23 responses; and anecdotal data from state team members. The workshops had a positive effect on the local interagency teams: 28 percent rated their team progress as excellent; 33 percent as very good, 22 percent as good, and 17 percent as fair. Lack of time was the most frequent deterrent to team progress. Sixty-seven percent of the respondents felt their success was due to linkage team assistance. Recommendations were made to hold training workshops for new teams, provide follow-up activities for existing teams, and match state team members as liaisons with local teams. (Two appendices list linkage team action plan objectives and tabulate follow-up survey responses.) (NLA)
