Annotation: This report describes the planning and implementation and evaluation results from the Safe Kids/Safe Streets (SK/SS) national evaluation on the, KIDSAFE project in Kansas City, MO.
Abstract: Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs (OJP), the Safe Kids/Safe Streets (SK/SS) program which began in 1997 is designed to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect and the development of juvenile delinquency by funding community collaboratives. Five localities within five States implemented the SK/SS program: Alabama, Missouri, Ohio, Vermont, and Michigan. This report presents findings from the SK/SS national evaluation on the SK/SS demonstration site in Kansas City, MO-KIDSAFE project. KIDSAFE was implemented in August 1998 and throughout implementation, KIDSAFE worked on all four of the federally mandated program elements: system reform and accountability, continuum of services, data collection and evaluation, and prevention education and public information. The report discusses each of these elements. Project accomplishments, as well as local perspectives on these accomplishments are presented and discussed. In acknowledging the success of KIDSAFE, several factors are identified that help account for the success of the project and include: selection of the lead agency, commitment from the four public sector partner (PSP) agencies, systemic thinking of the collaborative, and response of the community to neighborhood initiatives.
