Monitoring and Evaluating the Performance of Community-Based Care Agencies in Florida
Fred Wulczyn, Principal Investigator
The data Chapin Hall presents to these districts will show outcomes over time and by provider, including comparative data to better understand performance. The first core outcome to be explored is safety—that is, recurrence of maltreatment and maltreatment while in foster care. The permanency outcome centers on the likelihood of placement into foster care, the likelihood of achieving permanency, placement stability, placement reentry, and exits from care to such nonpermanent outcomes as running away. The third outcome concerns child well-being in terms of such factors as access to appropriate health services, educational services, and appropriate early intervention and other behavioral health services.
