AIA Cross-site Evaluation

Chapin Hall

Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago is conducting a cross-site evaluation of the AIA grantees. As part of the evaluation, Chapin Hall will be working with the projects and their local evaluators to examine: the characteristics of the families being served and the services they receive; program implementation and service delivery; collaboration with agency partners; participant outcomes; and program costs.

AIA Cross-site Evaluation Team
Oct. 2002 – Sept. 2014

University Of Missouri-Kansas City, Institute for Human Development
In 1996, the National AIA Resource Center began collecting cross-site research data from the AIA projects. From 2002-2014, the Resource Center contracted with the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Institute for Human Development (UMKC-IHD) to oversee the cross-site evaluation. Annual reports described the evaluation findings, including participant demographic characteristics, services provided, completion rates, co-occurrence of risk factors, interventions and some outcomes for the program as a whole and for several subgroups of participants.

Overall Findings from the Cross-site Evaluation
Although AIA projects vary in length and duration of services provided, the following outcomes reflect overall changes during a participant’s enrollment in an AIA-funded project from the most recent cross-site report. By the time of a second assessment, participants who successfully completed an AIA program were significantly more likely to have a child living with the biological parent, to live in a house or apartment, to have cash income, to access WIC benefits, to have no active child protective service involvement and to have no current drug/alcohol use (compared to those who did not successfully complete the AIA program).
