The Connecticut Child Advocacy Center. An Evaluation Report.
Urban Research Planning and Conference Center, Mount Kisco, NY.
This report evaluates the Systems Advocacy Model embodied in the operation of the Connecticut Child Advocacy Center (CCAC). The study was undertaken in order to: (1) describe the advocacy model used and compare it with other models in terms of relative effectiveness in meeting specific objectives; (2) determine the means used by the CCAC to arrive at an assessment of needs and to ascertain whether its goals correspond to those defined needs; (3) delineate the specific goals of CCAC and processes engaged in to achieve them; and (4) describe formal and informal channels of collaboration with state services and other groups relevant to the advocacy process. This evaluation report describes the program, and the policies and procedures used to assess the program's quality of service, coordination of services, potential persistence of effects and areas of possible replicability. Recommendations for future implementation of this advocacy model are presented. (Author/SJL)
