Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $302,950)
This study will conduct an evaluability assessment of the Weinberg Centers comprehensive elder abuse shelter and the shelter model overall. This will involve interviews with key informants at the shelter and in other similar agencies to understand the path that victims may take after experiencing elder mistreatment, whether going into the shelter, a hospital, or other type of facility. Using this information, they will create a logic model. They will use data collected by the program and by other relevant agencies to assess evaluability and identify comparison sites. They will determine whether there are individuals eligible to use the shelter who choose not to and could therefore comprise an appropriate comparison group to shelter clients. Finally, they will determine whether a cost evaluation is possible.
