Home-Centered Prevention Project. Annual Report. September 1, 1986, through August 31, 1987.
Flores, Joe G., Jr.
This document reports on the Home-Centered Prevention (HCP) Project, located in San Antonio, Texas within the Texas Department of Human Services Region 9, which was designed to implement and test a model for in-home services to families in which child abuse had occurred. It contains a process evaluation describing the first-year efforts of project staff to develop the HCP project. The background of the project is reviewed and goals and objectives of the project are listed. The counseling and case management approach used in the project and the short-term, intensive, comprehensive services provided to families through the model are described. Project operations and accomplishments are discussed and issues and problems encountered are identified. The report notes that, during its first year, the HCP served 14 families and 21 children who would otherwise by in substitute care; enhanced the teaching, role modeling, counseling, and supportive capabilities of project staff through training; wrote procedures for working with courts and for case selection and referrals; coordinated activities with other projects; and gathered data to be used in comparing the cost-benefit of project services versus substitute care. Relevant materials are appended. (NB)
