Child Neglect Demonstration Projects: Synthesis of Lessons Learned
In 1996 and 1997, the Children's Bureau funded 10 demonstration projects to address the 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. This publication provides an overview of services and outcomes, common challenges and successful strategies, and lessons learned for the 10 projects. Specific project and contact information is provided in the appendix for readers interested in learning more about individual projects.
