Resources For Action Series
The Alliance is pleased to share with you a series of resources that were developed as a result of its collaborative partnerships with some members of the ECI Learning Community. All were developed with funding support provided by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and are available at no cost.
The Alliance expresses appreciation to the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF) for supporting the development of the valuable resources resulting from these partnerships. The DDCF improves the quality of people’s lives through grants supporting the performing arts, wildlife conservation, medical research and the prevention of child maltreatment, and through preservation of the cultural and environmental legacy of Doris Duke’s properties.
Since 2007, Oklahoma has been implementing the Strengthening Families approach in seven Smart Start communities. In 2011, the Oklahoma Smart Start Initiative and the Oklahoma State Department of Health (Children’s Trust Fund) partnered with the Alliance to evaluate the impact of the Strengthening Families approach in these pilot communities. This document shares results of the evaluation, based on the Success Case Method – a balance of storytelling blended with principles of rigorous evaluative inquiry and research. In the accompanying DVD, the Smart Start coordinators discuss how the past three years of work with Strengthening Families has impacted children, families and their communities.
