Measuring program outcomes is an activity to which Home of the Innocents has been fully committed for many years. The agency has repeatedly seen the benefit of this activity in the continual enhancement of the quality and effectiveness of its programming. Each year, the process of measuring and examining the results of program outcomes bring to light new insights and challenges. Key to this process for the Home is its Program Services Committee. This committee of the Board of Directors meets monthly throughout the year to provide oversight and to review results. Each month, staff of a particular program report on the specifics of the program, such as its clients, services, challenges, and successes (outcomes). The Home's commitment is further evidenced by its having created a senior management position responsible for quality improvement. The Vice President of Quality Improvement reports at least quarterly to the Programs Services Committee and works year round to ensure compliance with the standards of the Council on Accreditation.

Program Success Examples:

Home of the Innocents celebrated eight high school graduations this year from our on-campus school, the Weinberg Academy.

Program Description:

Community Based Services (CBS) offers a variety of targeted wrap-around services for families in their homes and in the community. These programs are preventive in nature and are designed to help at-risk families avoid the need for more intensive services. • Therapy & Case Management Master’s level clinical specialists provide intensive in-home therapy for children with behavioral healthcare needs and developmental disabilities, as well as their caregivers. The goals of these services range from decreasing a child’s risk of psychiatric hospitalization to learning independent living skills and improving communication. Case managers work with each child’s treatment team to coordinate services at the Home and in the community to meet the specific needs of each family. • Aftercare assists at-risk young adults ages 18-24 with their transition to independent living in the community. The program emphasizes the importance of employment, education, and life skills development with the goal of self-sufficiency through case management, individual therapy and a unique weekly education program called Cornerstone. Cornerstone provides an opportunity for clients to build a support network among their peers while exploring common issues such as positive parenting, healthy family relationships, budgeting and daily living skills. • Safe Exchange provides a safe and neutral site for regular custody exchanges for divorced or separated parents who have a history of domestic violence. • Parents Acquiring Skills & Strength (PASS) offers free parent education classes and support groups to families involved with Child Protective Services. Behavioral Health Services are growing at Home of the Innocents. Our behavioral health teams work on campus and in the community to provide a growing array of services for children. • Autism Services were launched at the Home in 2003 and have become one of our region’s leading programs for children with autism, serving around 100 children each year. The program adheres to the principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), an evidence-based treatment with proven effectiveness in treating Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs). Board Certified Behavior Analysts and Autism Intervention Specialists assess each child’s unique needs, create and implement individualized treatment plans, and execute effective techniques and curricula to effectively reach the child’s treatment goals. • Psychological Services provide behavioral assessments and diagnostic testing that provide the foundation for effective treatment. The Home employs psychologists and pre-doctoral interns who complete assessment batteries that are tailored to the needs of the individual and/or family, and can include many different assessment measures to get the most accurate results. This program also provides individual, family and group outpatient therapy.

Program Success Examples:

-- Autism Services now has four Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs). This level of staffing enables the Home to provide the highest standard of practice in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), to expand supervision of treatment strategies, and ultimately to achieve faster gains in treatment goals. Our team began providing trainings for community child-caring organizations to help them better support families affected by autism, and for our own Open Arms Children’s Health dental staff. Our autism staff and dental providers team up to provide ABA supported dental services for children with an array of developmental and behavioral needs. -- Aftercare received a new permanent supportive housing grant through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) that will serve eight families and two single individuals. Cornerstone celebrated 12 graduates who maintained their own housing in the community, have their GED or diploma, are employed, and have excelled in their peer-support groups. Additional participants were recognized for their educational achievements: three GEDs, 18 college semesters in good academic standing and one CNA certification. Spring Retreat was held at All Saints Episcopal Retreat Center; participants engaged in team building activities, swimming, canoeing, a hayride and bonfire. -- Parents Acquiring Skills and Strength (PASS) served 484 individuals in Kentucky and Indiana in the last year through 21 cycles of parenting classes. Families completing the program consistently show progress in the areas assessed by the Adult-Adolescent Parenting Inventory, a standardized testing instrument measuring appropriate parental expectations, empathy, behaviors and values. Last year, 79% of PASS graduates scored within normal parenting scores in all areas. -- Safe Exchange facilitates between 300 and 400 custody exchanges each month, serving a total of 522 individuals last year. -- Project Keepsafe provided 338 days of care to 62 children last year. Since the program began in 2002, Project Keepsafe has helped around 600 children, provided over 6,800 days of care, and has a 96% success rate of family preservation upon discharge.

The ATC offers innovative aquatic therapy opportunities for residents and clients of the Home as well as classes for individuals of all ages from the community. • The new Pediatric Outpatient Rehab program offers speech and occupational therapy to children of all ages from the community. Speech Therapy uses a variety of methods and techniques to elicit communication, including augmentative and alternative communication devices. Speech-language pathologists can evaluate and treat language, articulation, voice, fluency, and feeding/swallowing disorders, dependent upon the child’s needs. Occupational Therapy addresses physical, cognitive, psychosocial and sensory-perceptual performance by modifying the environment or activity to enhance their level of independent functioning and quality of life. The occupational therapist’s goal is to enable children to participate in age appropriate activities of daily living (dressing, bathing, grooming, toileting and feeding), play, home, school and community activities.
