Evaluation of CPS/DV Co-location

CHSR, contracted by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS), is evaluating a collaborative approach for serving families experiencing both intimate partner violence and child maltreatment.

Evaluation & Research

CHSR is utilizing mixed methods to evaluate collaborative practices and outcomes for families. Methods include telephone interviews with all counties’ Directors of Services, focus groups with caseworkers and supervisors, face-to-face interviews with domestic violence staff, a statewide online survey, case records review, and surveys of clients. Three counties without CPS/DV collaborations were selected for comparison and analysis alongside three counties engaged in collaborative initiatives.
