Comprehensive Outcomes Planning: Strategies for a Non-Profit Child Abuse Prevention Agency.
Lynch, Christina Olenik; Davis, Stephanie Rice
This paper discusses the development of evaluation strategies for a nonprofit child abuse prevention agency in Maryland. The Family Tree, an organization associated with National Parents Anonymous and the National Exchange Club Foundation for the Prevention of Child Abuse, serves more than 15,000 people per year through community training, parenting education, and home visitation programs. With the participation of its staff, the Family Tree identified an overall agency outcome plan. In addition, each of the agency's four core programs created linking outcome logic models. A participatory approach was used throughout the process with facilitation from an outside consultant. The results are a new way of performing program functions and a fresh perspective on program planning. (Contains 5 figures and 15 references.) (SLD)
