In 2011, Care, Assess, Respond, Empower (CARE) received a final program rating of Promising based on a review of two studies (Eggert et al. 2002; and Hooven et al. 2010). In 2020, CrimeSolutions conducted a re-review, using the updated CrimeSolutions Program Scoring Instrument, using only the study by Eggert and colleagues (2002). (Using CrimeSolutions updated criteria, the original Hooven study was screened out from the re-review.) The re-review resulted in the program receiving a new rating of No Effects.
