     This evaluation design guide is part of a larger United States Air Force Family Advocacy Program (USAF-FAP) evaluation project conducted by Glenda Kaufman Kantor, University of New Hampshire, and John Landsverk, San Diego State University. This project was supported through a cooperative agreement between the National Network on Family Resiliency (NNFR), Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service (CREES), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and USAF-FAP under USAF-FAP/NNFR-USDA Special Project Contract #95-EXCA-3-0414.

     The contributions of AFMOA/SGOF Family Advocacy, Colonel John Nelson, Lieutenant Colonel Carla Monroe-Posey, and the Program Managers and staff of AFMOA/SGOF are gratefully acknowledged. We are also extremely appreciative of the assistance provided by all the USAF and Family Advocacy staff at the bases, as well as the families who participated in the evaluation. 

     In its original form this evaluation design guide was specifically tailored for needs of the US Air Force Family Advocacy Program. Craig M. Allen, Research Director, NNFR Family Violence Projects, has edited the guide to make it widely available to a variety of family violence researchers, advocates, and family violence prevention and intervention program specialists.

Project Background
