Descriptive Flow: Parent-Child Centers. Phase I.
Giammatteo, Michael C.
The Parent-Child Center (P-CC), in the central area of Portland, Oregon, has as its objective the alleviation of the problems of inaccessibility and unresponsiveness of existing helping services in the area. It is hoped that through P-CC, central area residents, low-income, non-whites, will achieve the following: (1) effective use of available services, (2) modification of existing programs to create responsiveness to problems, (3) involvement in problem-solving, and (4) development of methods to attack the causes of poverty and satisfy un-met needs. Program 200, an evaluation system, under the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory, is being carried out in four areas which are required to produce an adequate evaluation of program operation, effectiveness and total impact: (1) the function of the contextual system as a matrix for Program 200, (2) the effectiveness of structural and administrative procedures in performance of the program as an instigator of institutional change, (3) the programmatic processes of the development team as facilitating the best use of techniques, and (4) the output and impact of Program 200 as successfully creating institutional change through technical innovations. The Evaluation Model utilizes four cycles and six types of data. (AE)
