Woodruff, Geneva; Anson, Christopher R.
This final report describes Project WIN, a 3-year demonstration project in Massachusetts which served children diagnosed as HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) positive and their intravenous drug using parents. The transagency community based model was designed to serve the educational, medical, therapeutic and social needs of 25 preschool children a year and their families. Specific project goals included establishment and operationalization of a Transagency Board, implementation of casefinding efforts among community agencies, provision of home-based early intervention services, and dissemination of information to professionals and the public. Specifically the WIN model is comprised of six major program components: (1) referral, screening and intake; (2) transdisciplinary team assessment of child and family; (3) transagency board coordination; (4) individual family service plan completion; (5) home based intervention; and (6) case management. Individual chapters provide details about: (1) goals and objectives of the project; (2) theories or findings underlying the project's approach; (3) description of the training model; (4) description of the project's activities and accomplishments; (5) methodological or logistical issues; (6) evaluation findings and project impact; and (7) other sources of information. Appendixes include lists of the WIN Board members and presentations made, the Board opinion survey, a sample individualized family service plan, and a goal attainment scale. (49 references) (DB)
