Supplement to Casey Texas Foster Care Alumni Study

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.



SRO will collaborate 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. 300 in-person interviews will be completed, at an average length of 120 minutes. Interviewing will take place in the State of Texas.



All SRO work will be conducted from January 2008 through June 2009, with data collection expected to start in the fall of 2008 (September/October) and concluding by end of March 2009.

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

Country of Focus: USA
