report description
The Community Attention Home, The Dalles, Oregon, provides services to those children, who, due to dependency, delinquent behavior, or family disruption, cannot remain within their present environment. The Home provides short-term shelter care with staff emphasis on proper diagnostic assessment for subsequent placement. Placement of children in the Home provides social service agencies time to plan for further care and/or treatment.The project presents itself in essentially four major areas. They are: a descriptive presentation of data already available at the Home; a determination of what additional data needs to be gathered for further evaluation of the Home’s effectiveness; development of a system for collecting such data as are considered necessary for a further evaluation; and, a description of the statistical methods for the analysis of these data.The information gathered and evaluated as a result of this study will be used by Attention Home staff for both program evaluation and development. This is the third in a series of studies which the Community Attention Home has sponsored for such evaluative and developmental purposes.
