  Annotation: This report presents a summary from a national evaluation and assessment of the federally funded Safe Kids/Safe Streets program sites in their attempt to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect leading to potential delinquent behavior.
Abstract: Many studies suggest that child abuse and neglect are risk factors for the development of juvenile delinquency and other problem behaviors. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, the Safe Kids/Safe Streets (SK/SS) program was designed to break this cycle by funding community collaboratives to develop community-wide efforts to reduce child abuse and neglect. Five localities implemented the SK/SS program and are located in the States of Alabama, Missouri, Ohio, Vermont, and Michigan. This report summarizes the four-volume report on a national evaluation of SK/SS, which examined planning and implementation of the SK/SS sites from their initial awards in 1997 through June 2003. The volumes consist of cross-site findings, case studies of the planning, implementation, and outcomes, the methodology and findings of the Stakeholder Survey, and the methodology and findings of the 2002 Survey of Agency Personnel. The summary covers the areas of Federal goals, expectations, and structure of SK/SS sites, grantees and their communities, program implementation, accomplishments of the SK/SS sites, local perspectives on accomplishments, factors that influenced the outcomes of the SK/SS projects, and lessons learned for the SK/SS experience.
