Evaluation of Street Projects for the Spanish Speaking. Findings, Conclusions, Recommendations. Volume II of a Two-Volume Report.
Vasquez Associates Ltd., Milwaukee, WI.
Nine Street Projects designed for the Spanish speaking and funded by Region V of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) are examined here. They were: the El Hogar del Nino Day Care Center, Spanish-American Day Care Center, United Migrant Opportunity Services' Bilingual/Bicultural Early Childhood Center, Youth Services at El Centro de la Causa, El Centro de la Causa Library Project, Talent Search - Latino, Project Venceremos, Latino Mental Health Outreach and Benito Juarez Health Clinic. The evaluation activities were intended to provide measures of operational effectiveness and to evaluate the relative impact of project services on service recipients. The evaluators gathered the information on which this evaluation was based through interviews with administrative staff and clients of the special projects, review of existing project records, interviews with project board members and staff members from referral agencies, and site visits. It was found that, as a general rule, the nine street projects were meeting needs and providing services to the Spanish speaking which otherwise were not available, or were perceived by the clients to be unavailable or at least inconvenient, to the program participants. For the most part, the street projects were ineffective in developing non-HEW support for program continuation expansions. (Author/JM)
