Program Evaluation Case Studies
Bringing HOPE to Staten Island
Following an intensive, multi-partner planning effort, the Richmond County District Attorney’s Office offered eligible substance-abuse offenders pre-arraignment diversion services. Early implementation findings suggest it is a promising approach to combatting the city’s rising opioid crisis.
Closing Opportunity and Achievement Gaps through Out-of-School Time Programs
With a deep history of supporting out-of-school-time programs nationally, Metis evaluators continue to examine how these initiatives help level the playing field for children and youth in under-resourced communities.
