Phoenix Early Head Start: Twelve Family Stories Final Chapter
Case studies give voice to the rich background information that can only be provided by program participants themselves. While the numbers and statistics that comprise a program evaluation are key to learning about what happens to program participants overall, it is important to not lose sight of who these individuals are, and perhaps why their lives unfold as they do. To develop some of this background information for the five-year program evaluation of Phoenix Early Head Start (EHS), a case study was undertaken of 12 families who were representative of all EHS program participants. Each of the 12 families agreed to be followed throughout their participation in the program so that their "stories" could be updated as they unfolded from one year to the next.
