The Human Services Research Institute's interim report contains an independent evaluation of the first year of the Center for Public Representation (CPR) and Nonotuck Resource Associates, Inc.’s ongoing project in Northampton, Massachusetts. The project reached 8 decision-makers (DMs) and paired them with facilitators who had existing relationships with them that ranged from 3 to 30 years. The report highlights as good practices the partnership between a legal advocacy and service provision organization, the scheduling of additional time and flexibility in order to work with DMs, and the use of notarized SDM agreements to define supporters’ roles especially where DMs elected to have multiple supporters, among many other positive aspects of this project’s implementation.
