How Do You Measure the Effectiveness of Children's Advocacy Centers? (Workshop 104)
The workshop purpose is to examine how best to measure the effectiveness of Children's Advocacy Centers (CACs). Based upon information from a multi-year, multi-site evaluation of CACs funded by the Federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the workshop presentation describes the need to capture different types of outcome measures in order to identify the multiple systems involved with CACs. A CAC's processes and outcomes—and the evaluation of them—need to be understood in terms of the particular population it serves and role it plays in the community.
