Evidence-Based Programs

77832740Family Services is dedicated to implementing evidence-based programs that produce quality outcomes. What does “evidence-based” mean? Simply put, a program is recognized to be evidence-based if (a) evaluation research shows that the program produces the expected positive results; (b) the results can be attributed to the program itself, rather than to other extraneous factors or events; (c) the evaluation is peer-reviewed by experts in the field; and (d) the program is “endorsed” by a federal agency or respected research organization and included in their list of effective programs.

Family Services operates 6 such programs.
