Abstract
Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs (OJP), the Safe Kids/Safe Streets (SK/SS) program which began in 1997 is designed to break the cycle of child abuse and neglect and the development of juvenile delinquency by funding community collaboratives. Five localities within five States implemented the SK/SS program: Alabama, Missouri, Ohio, Vermont, and Michigan. A four-volume final report describes the results of a national evaluation of SK/SS conducted by Westat. This report, volume III, describes the third in series of surveys designed to determine how collaboration members, or stakeholders feel about the SK/SS initiative and what role they have actually played in it. The survey was conducted in 2003 with previous surveys conducted in 1998 and 2001. The previous surveys focused on stakeholders’ views about and involvement in the planning process and in earlier stages of program implementation. Overall findings included: (1) in many respects, the 2003 respondents were similar to those from 2001; (2) stakeholders remain supportive of the four Federal strategies or elements that form the OJP framework for SK/SS; (3) about the same proportion of stakeholders in 2003, as in 2001 came from organizations that had received SK/SS funds (37 percent) and/or contributed staff to SK/SS activities (50 percent); and (4) there was no evidence that commitment to SK/SS had eroded during the late stages of implementation.
