Will’s Place Evaluation, Joplin, Missouri

Following the devastating tornado that hit Joplin, Missouri, Will’s Place was established by the Ozark Center of Joplin, Missouri in September of 2012. Will’s Place was created to address the problems of children and youth who experienced trauma as a result of this catastrophic event. The MIMH is responsible for evaluating the programs concentrating on the trauma needs of children and youth implemented by Will’s Place. The evaluation examines outcome measures focused on short and long term change or maintenance in child/youth functioning and trauma symptoms as well as increased knowledge and awareness of trauma and other evidence-based practices related to trauma in the broader community.
