Community Resilience and Recovery Initiative: Final Evaluation Report. 4.4. Program Effectiveness Analysis


As noted earlier, complete SAIS cases require an intake record, follow-up interview, and a discharge record. The number of discharge records for each site is depicted in Figure 4-18. When creating discharge SAIS records, staff must assign each client a specific discharge status: the primary status marker is "Completion/Graduate" versus "Termination." Records for all clients who are "terminated" must contain a reason for that disposition status. Table 4-3 indicates the statuses of terminated clients for each grantee.
