The supplement to the final report outlines the Pro-Child Project of Arlington County (Virginia) designed to provide protective and preventive services to neglected and abused children and their families. Twelve sections cover the following program areas: community context; project history; summary activities for each of 3 years; organization and staffing; project components (including community education, professional education, case management and review, and court case activities); implementation/operation problems (in such areas as staffing, acceptance and termination of cases, and development of a 24-hour hotline); future plans; project goals (including to strengthen family functioning wherever possible and therefore reduce inappropriate placements); project management and worker satisfaction; analysis of client data; community impact; and resource allocation and service volume and costs.
