Casey Texas and Michigan Foster Care Alumni Studies

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigator:   Steven Heeringa

The purpose of this project is to collect data on alumni of foster care that will inform policy makers and help them provide services that will improve the lives of alumni and youth currently in care. The study will focus on outcomes of youth after they leave foster care, including 1) an assessment of current functioning of 23-year-old foster care alumni (outcomes of interest include mental and physical health, education, employment, and community involvement); and 2) determining how services, opportunities, relationships with foster parents and agency staff may be related to outcomes.



SMP/SRC’s involvement in this project includes collaborating with Casey Research Services staff on sample design, IRB approval, obtaining sample files, questionnaire design, pretesting, programming, locating respondents, data collection, coding, and producing final data files.



All SMP/SRC work will be done July 2007 through March 2009, with data collection occurring July through December 2008. 300 in-person interviews will be completed, at an average length of 120 minutes.

Funding Period: 01/01/2008 to 12/31/2009

Country of Focus: USA
