Phase II Report. Volume II: Program Study Report. Evaluation of the Child and Family Resource Program (CFRP).
This volume, part of a series of Child and Family Resource Program (CFRP) evaluation reports, is devoted to the program study component of the CFRP evaluation. The purpose of this component is to develop the most comprehensive picture possible of the operation of the 11 CFRP's located across the country, in order to provide a backdrop against which the provision and impact of CFRP services to individual families can be more clearly understood. Relying heavily on impressionistic reports arising out of interviews with program staff and observations during site visits to 6 of the 11 CFRP's, the report revolves around the following topics: the nature of the community and institutional contexts within which the programs operate; the way in which each program is organized; the processes by which client families are recruited, assessed, enrolled, and terminated; opportunities for parent involvement in operations; the nature and extent of services received and referrals made; and the ongoing functioning of the other three major program components of CFRP evaluation (infant/toddler, Head Start, and preschool/school linkage).
