Evidence-Based Programs in Action: Policy and Practice Insights from a Success Story. Research-to-Results Brief. Publication #2010-08
Uninsky, Philip
Child Trends
A great deal of attention recently has focused on evidence-based programs--interventions that have been found through rigorous evaluation to have positive effects or impacts on targeted outcomes. Public and private funders want to fund evidence-based programs and are requiring evidence of outcomes. Meanwhile, program providers want to be highly effective and to have consistent funding. The Partnership for Results is a model of local governance designed to implement a broad spectrum of evidence-based programs for the benefit of youth at risk. Most importantly, since the Partnership was established, outcomes for children and youth and their families have improved dramatically over time and compared with neighboring counties. This brief will describe the Partnership and its results; the elements of its model; obstacles to creating a continuum of evidence-based programs; and principles for replicating the Partnership's governance model. (Contains 1 footnote.) ["Evidence-Based Programs in Action: Policy and Practice Insights from a Success Story" was written with David Carrier.]
