Enhancement of Assessment Tool for Children Entering Shelter Care

The three largest children’s crisis shelters in the metropolitan Phoenix area entered into a collaboration, the Portable Assessments for Kids (PAK) project, to improve service through the development and implementation of comprehensive, multidisciplinary, standardized, and portable assessments for children entering shelter care. Results of the assessments are available to each child’s custodian through a centralized shared database. A Lodestar grant provided needed enhancements to the database.
