The Milton Eisenhower Foundation plans to replicate scientifically proven model programs in identified sites around the country. These "Multiple Solutions" programs are designed to effect numerous outcomes, improving school achievement levels and quality of life conditions not only for "at risk" youth, but also their families, schools, communities, and those community members who are returning home after long periods of incarceration. Eisenhower Foundation will replicate the following model programs: 1) Youth Safe Haven Police Mini-stations, linking local officers with trained mentors who work intensively with at risk youth, aged 6-12, providing after school programs; 2) Quantum Opportunities Program, a computer based remedial education and mentoring program for older at-risk high school students; 3) Full Service Community Schools, which, through a community assessment, identify and implement a wide range of essential services and activities for youth and their families, all within a local school that stays open longer hours all year round; 4) Delancey Street educational and rehabilitative program for adult ex-offenders and substance abusers, teaching a multitude of academic and living skills to individuals for whom no other social service program works.
This Multiple Solutions initiative has two main goals: 1) improve youth development outcomes among young people who participate in programming at safe havens, and 2) reduce crime in the targeted neighborhoods. Desired outcomes include: a) keeping youth aged 6 to 18 in school or alternative school, b) improving school performance through homework labs and other educational activities c) developing youth for responsible adulthood, d) keeping youth positively engaged and out of the criminal justice system, e) improving the quality of life in the neighborhood, and f) Increasing trust among police, youth and the community.

The Eisenhower Foundation will design and implement evaluation plans for each type of program replication. For example, for grantee will track attitude and behavior change around sobriety, educational goals, compliance with court orders, school attendance, standardized test scores, graduation rates, school based crimes, etc. Eisenhower will utilize surveys, comparison groups, and other measurement tools to track progress. The grantee will report these measures to OJJDP in their Categorical Assistance Progress Reports. NCA/NCF
