The Integrated Prevention and Early Intervention Model (IPEI) described in the previous chapter provides a theoretical and programmatic framework for interventions delivered to at-risk children and youth at the Denver Bridge Project. This chapter illustrates how the IPEI model is used to inform and guide the agency’s evaluation plan. Specific evaluation strategies and measures used to assess child, youth, and program outcomes at the Bridge Project are described. To set a context for using the IPEI model as a guide to evaluation activities, this chapter begins with a discussion of the importance of evaluation in community-based programs for at-risk children and youth. Evaluation strategies available to practitioners and program administrators in community settings are also briefly reviewed.
