This report is the first to be produced from the Evaluation of Parent Aware being conducted by Child Trends and funded by the Minnesota Early Learning Foundation (MELF). It covers the first year of the program from July, 2007 through August, 20081 , and is part of the process evaluation of the program. Two future reports are planned for December, 2009 and December, 2010 to provide further findings from the process evaluation as well as findings from outcomes evaluation (which will examine outcomes for children, families, programs and communities).
