June 8, 2015
The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) has released 'Protect, Heal, Thrive: Lessons Learned from the Defending Childhood Demonstration Program.' This report highlights process evaluation findings from six of the eight sites participating in the Defending Childhood Demonstration Program, a national initiative that the Department of Justice funds and OJJDP supports to address children's exposure to violence. The researchers evaluated the strategies that the six sites implemented to reduce and raise awareness about children's exposure to violence in their communities and make recommendations for jurisdictions and tribal sites planning similar work.
