Annotation: This final report presents detailed case studies of the planning implementation and outcomes for each of the five sites from a national evaluation of the Safe Kids/Safe Streets program, examining the planning and implementation at the SK/SS sites.
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. A four-volume final report describes the results of a national evaluation of SK/SS conducted by Westat. Volume I contains detailed information about the SK/SS framework and the goals, objectives, and expectations of OJP. This report, volume II, consists of case studies of the development and implementation of SK/SS at all five sites from 1997 through June 2003: Burlington, VT; Madison County, AL; Kansas City, MO; Sault Ste. Marie, MI; and Toledo, OH. The case studies draw upon multiple sources of information collected throughout the national evaluation of the SK/SS Initiative. Within each case study the following areas are addressed: project setting, proposal and planning phase, project implementation, activities implemented, and overall assessment.
