Comprehensive Child Development Program--A National Family Support Demonstration. First Annual Report.
Hubbell, Ruth; And Others
The Comprehensive Child Development Act of 1988 provided for the establishment of Comprehensive Child Development Program (CCDP) projects to be administered by the Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF). A total of 24 CCDP projects were funded through 1990. The CCDP works with the family as a unit and integrates services across agencies. Services provided include child health care, licensed day care, developmentally appropriate education, and vocational training for parents. This document reports the findings of the ACYF's first evaluation of the CCDP projects. Findings are discussed in terms of: (1) the CCDP project sites; (2) the families enrolled in the projects; (3) interagency coordination and special issues encountered in implementing projects; (4) the case management format of service delivery and the services provided by the projects; (5) attrition; and (6) site visits. Factors that facilitated project start-up are discussed and some early successes are reported. Two extensive appendixes include a description of management support activities and products, and profiles of the 24 CCDP programs. Each profile describes the project's area of operation and philosophy, and lists the services provided to adults and children. (BC)
