Substance misuse has had a crippling impact on children and families in Kentucky. In response, Kentucky has implemented programming to proffer services to families experiencing substance misuse. This project assesses community processes and impacts associated with implementing these services. The project employs participatory methodological processes aimed at assessing avenues for Title IV-E waiver programming conceptualization, implementation, and evaluation. Additionally, this includes assessing community collaboration frameworks, network strengths/needs, and areas for consideration/examination in statewide implementation. Objective 1: In conjunction with other community and university partners (Eastern Kentucky University, University of Louisville) assess KSTEP and START programming conceptualization, implementation, and evaluation, as well as community collaboration frameworks, network strengths and needs, and areas for consideration/examination in statewide implementation. Objective 2: Develop and implement ongoing virtual service provision plans In conjunction with DCBS, community providers, and university partners, staff will develop and implement continuity plans for service provision using virtual platforms and technologies. These virtual service provision plans will be executed as needed to ensure the continuity of services for KSTEP and START community process assessment protocols.
