We have a robust evaluation system and use valid instruments to track progress and demonstrate evidence based impact.
Through the programs and services offered by Discovery House, women and children are able to heal from their trauma, rebuild their lives, and achieve self-sufficiency. This includes:
Improved understanding of trauma on the developing brain
Improved mother-child attachment
Children achieve developmental milestones
Families are equipped to transition out of the program in to independent housing, with the ability to maintain stability
Our evidence based programs help break the cycle of inter-generational violence for hundreds of Discovery House children and youth each year. Since we began this approach in 2015, Discovery House has seen only 3% of families return to Discovery House - a clear indication that these leading-edge and innovative programs are working.
