The results of an evaluation of the six Home Start Training Centers are presented in this report. Included are the final research design of the Training Centers evaluation, findings from three sets of site visits, and results of questionnaires sent to (1) people who participated in training, (2) their supervisors, and (3) Head Start grantees and delegate agencies. Chapter I provides a brief history of the original Home Start Demonstration Program and presents the rationale for establishing the six Home Start Training Centers. This chapter also contains summary descriptions of the Training Centers, including their demographic characteristics, staffing patterns, and community and grantee support. Chapter II presents the evaluation design, the methodology of the site visits, and procedures for the spring 1978 data collection. Chapter III uses the observation data and onsite interview information as a basis for describing Training Center activities. Chapter IV sets forth training effectiveness findings based on information gathered by the questionnaires, and Chapter V covers the demand for training as described in the mail surveys. (Author/MP)
