A Guide to Future Outcome Assessments of Family Support Service Programs at Phyllis Wheatley Community Center.

Hewapathirana, Gertrude.

This is the final report to Phyllis Wheatley Community Center (PWCC) on assessing outcomes in its Family Services Program (FSP). The project was conducted from June 18 to August 25 2007 as a 50% summer student research project, which was funded by the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA), University of Minnesota and the PWCC in Minneapolis. As proposed by Mr. Gustafson, the goal of this research project was to produce a cost-benefit analysis of the PWCC's Family Service Program. He stated to the author that 'we believe there is a need to determine what, if any, return on investment there is for programs that provide family stability services including anger management, domestic violence prevention, self-sufficiency planning, and effective parenting for high risk populations.'
