Sample of findings

Sample of Findings

Does the work of Family Connection result in improved outcomes?

  • A difficult question to answer unambiguously, but evidence is mounting.

  • Important limitations of county-wide data

  • Analyses from the Benchmark Database: Addressing vs. not addressing benchmarks

    • Positive results (New Family Index, Birth Weights, Child Deaths, High School Completion, Free or Reduced Fee Lunch)

    • Results that are not yet positive (Prenatal Care, Juvenile Arrests)

    • Ambiguous results (Teenage Pregnancies, Repeat Births to Teens)

  • Findings from recent Case Studies: High Functioning and High Impact Collaboratives (Testing the Theory of Change)

    • Learnings Regarding Collaboration and Collaborative Processes
