The project will build on a previous project – Missouri Project LAUNCH to expand the geographic impact from two ZIP codes to all 18 ZIP codes in St. Louis City.
Nikole Lobb Dougherty, of the Evaluation Center, is partnering with Dr. Trish Kohl and Vision for Children at Risk to design and implement an evaluation of the five-year grant.
The purpose of St. Louis Project LAUNCH (STL-PL) is to promote the well-being of young children, from birth to 8 years of age, by addressing the social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and behavioral aspects of their development. From 2012 to 2018, Vision for Children at Risk (VCR) led the local implementation of a state-wide Project LAUNCH grant awarded to the Missouri Department of Mental Health. STL-PL will build on this project to expand the geographic impact from two ZIP codes to all 18 ZIP codes in St. Louis City.
The Evaluation Center will work in close collaboration with Dr. Kohl and the VCR project team to refine the existing program logic model and formalize the evaluation plan, develop data collection instruments/protocols, and analyze, synthesize and report findings.
