The logic model is developed in relation to the services that are provided by Domestic Violence Response Agencies. The counselors and staff are important resources for these types of programs. The activities that these individuals take part in include therapy, counseling, and informational sessions. This produces an environment in which those who need to receive these services are able to do so in an effective manner. The major benefits of implementing the program in this way allows those who are in domestic violence situations to receive important information and have access to the necessary sources in order to seek help. This has the benefit of making these events occur less frequently.
Performance measurement will be a part of this program evaluation due to the need for effective solutions to this problem. The best way to measure performance within agencies that deal in responding to domestic violence is to assess the level of domestic abuse cases that are occurring. Through analysis of these trends, a better idea of how effective the program is can be developed.
