Reflect: Approximately 1.2 million organizations are  registered with the IRS as nonprofit organizations. It is estimated  that millions more small formal and informal associations exist that do  not register with the IRS because they have revenues of less than $5,000  per year. Nonprofit organizations in America have combined revenues of  approximately $621.4 billion, which represents 6.2% of the nation’s  economy (Luckert, n.d.).  Congress developed the Top Tier Evidence  standards for nonprofit organizations, defined as: Interventions shown  in well-designed and implemented randomized controlled trials,  preferably conducted in typical community settings, to produce sizable,  sustained benefits to participants and/or society (“Top Tier”, n.d.).

In Oregon they have developed an intervention for parenting training  for recently separated, single mothers with sons aged 6-10 years. It is  administered by Implementation Sciences International, Inc. (ISII), a  research-based, non-profit organization providing training for community  practitioners in Parent Management Training – the Oregon Model (PMTO®).  The cost per family to the organization is $1000 to $1500 dollars. The  meetings teach five core parenting practices: appropriate, noncoercive  discipline (e.g., setting limits, following through, reinforcing  prosocial behavior); skill encouragement (e.g., breaking tasks such as  homework into achievable steps); monitoring; problem solving; and  positive involvement. They also teach skills tailored to divorcing  women, including (i) emotional regulation (e.g., recognizing negative  emotions, and practicing techniques to help regulate them); (ii)  managing interparental conflict (e.g., through problem solving and  negotiation); and (iii) addressing children’s divorce-related concerns  (e.g., through active listening, problem solving, and recognizing and  managing emotions). (“Parent Management Training”, n.d.).

Write: Imagine the Lovely People County Board of  Eastern Kentucky are considering developing a program such as the ones  rerferenced above for their county. The board is split, particularly  around money and other resources, as to whether the county itself should  implement the program or to take bids from other agents operating in  the county. They have tapped you, as a county director of Temporary  Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), to help them make the best choice.  You are ready to give them a report based on your research. Utilizing  the readings and your own sources, discuss what issues might be involved  in your determination of your recommendation to the county board. Based  on this analysis let us know what you would recommend. These are some  helpful resources that may help guide you in your recommendation:

Use the following questions to help direct you in your response:

  • Describe the advantages and challenges of the choice you are recommending over the other.
  • Given your counties special needs what recommendations would you give for constructing this program in your county?
  • Briefly, how would evaluate the success of the alternative you are recommending?

Guided Response: As a board member, what questions  would you have given your fellow peer’s recommendation? What  recommendations would you have regarding their decision. What  suggestions can you give that would address concerns you might have  given the constituites you represent?
