The Prevention and Early Intervention (PEI) Division of the Texas Department of Family Protective Services (DFPS) contracted with the Child and Family Research Partnership (CFRP) at the University of Texas at Austin’s LBJ School of Public Affairs to evaluate the Military Families and Veterans Prevention Program (MVP). DFPS designed the MVP program to serve military and veteran families who are at a high risk of family violence and/or abuse and neglect. The MVP program was designed to serve the three largest military communities in Texas: Fort Hood in Bell County; Joint Base San Antonio in Bexar County; and Fort Bliss in El Paso County.The overarching goal of the MVP program is to prevent child abuse and neglect by building and supporting military families’ protective factors, resulting in stronger families and improved military communities. This report serves as the final evaluation report by CFRP on the MVP program. This report reviews the unique context of each military community participating in the program and outlines the structure each community created for their MVP program. This report focuses primarily on implementation findings—identifying the unique needs of military and veteran families and highlighting the ways in which programs adapt to meet the needs of military and veteran families.
