Evaluation of Family Preservation and Reunification Programs: Interim Report. 4.3 Implementation of the Evaluation of Family Preservation and Reunification Services

01/08/2001

DYFS, as reflected in interviews with FPS administrators and in their manual materials, is interested in integrating ongoing evaluation into the development of its FPS program statewide. The FPS state legislation in 1993 also required monitoring of outcomes of the program. Before discussing the implementation of the evaluation in New Jersey, Section 4.2.1 will review previous studies in the state and the lessons learned.
