Purpose: The Juniper Gardens Children's Project will provide consultation and assistance on efforts to assess program implementation and fidelity for the Kansas Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program. This will involve attending regular meetings related to evaluation and Continuous Quality Improvement for home visiting programs administered by Parents as Teachers, Healthy Families, and Early Head Start in Wyandotte County, Kansas and Southeast Kansas. They will assist in the development of measures and on training on data collection efforts. They will also provide assistance with the development of reports, and consultation to the home visiting programs on how program implementation data can be used to improve fidelity to home visiting models. They will also provide assistance related to benchmark data collection and program evaluation.
