Santa Clara County Day Care Treatment Center for Delinquents. Final Evaluation Report.
Lampkin, Ann C.; Taylor, Gary G.
The day care center is a location where youngsters go during the day for school and group or individual counseling, while continuing to live at home. Juveniles remain in the formalized education and treatment program for approximately four months. Then they graduate into eight months of aftercare. Evaluation measures included recidivism, self-concept, family functioning, and cost-effectiveness. The center was also assessed as an alternative to out of home placement. Evaluators concluded that the program was a viable alternative to 24-hour institutional care and should be continued if steps could be taken to reduce the relatively high recidivism rate associated with the program.
