DADS evaluation and research activities aid in the improvement of DADS services to the citizens of Santa Clara County. There are three major goals:
To evaluate DADS’ and DADS-partnered programs using an outcomes-focused methodology
To promote and undertake research that will lead to improvements in DADS services; and
To support the learning organization atmosphere within DADS by developing and implementing systems for feedback to programs about their services and outcomes.
This page will be kept up to date as new reports are finalized. We hope they will be of use to county and contract programs as well as to the wider community.
