dc.description.abstract In an effort to more effectively manage the use of the VOCA funds, OCVA expressed an interest in implementing a more robust evaluation of the 2015-2019 plan and providers funded under it. The project has two goals: Goal 1: Determine which funded initiatives are effective and meeting their goals. Goal 2: Identify service delivery gaps, and provide recommendations on how to address those gaps. This report will focus specifically on the activities, findings, and recommendations related to both goals. It is important to note that data and results reflected in this report were collected from grant manager surveys or in-person program interviews. In the future, we recommend an increase in data collection from programs to help determine which approaches and services are most effective in reaching their specific goals...Key Findings: 1. Programs that are successfully reaching their goals are also increasing their volunteer numbers. 2. Barriers to program success include a lack of discussion around staff mental health and self-care practices. 3. Another barrier to program success may be availability of trainings. Many staff members expressed a need for additional trainings in several areas. 4. Programs that have been successful in meeting their goals are often strongly supported by their communities. 5. Programs are excited to continue expanding their work and providing services to their communities. [CVRL Note: this report is a collaboration between the Washington Statistical Analysis Center and the Washington Office of Crime Victims Advocacy and the appendices include grant application example, survey text, outcome performance measurement guide, and additional articles on program evaluation and alternative data sources. The partnership is part of the 2017-2018 cohort of the Center for Victim Research's funded collaborations between state Victims of Crime Act offices and Statistical Analysis Centers (VOCA-SAC). Each report includes a final segment discussing the research partnership, the future of the partnership, and how the results will inform stakeholders and practice.] (Author Text) en_US
