Child Neglect Demonstration Projects, Synthesis of Lessons Learned

In 1996 and 1997, the Children’s Bureau funded 10 demonstration projects to address prevention, intervention, and treatment needs of neglected children and their families. These projects implemented and evaluated a wide variety of service strategies with large numbers of children and families. Programs varied considerably in terms of theoretical model (psychosocial or ecological), target population, location (in-home or out-of-home), duration, and intensity. Specific project and contact information is provided in the appendix for readers interested in learning more about individual projects.
