Outcomes that Matter[TM] for Children and Young People in Out-of-Home Care
Fulcher, Leon C.; Garfat, Thom
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v20 n4 p52-58 Win 2012
Outcomes measurement has become a contemporary requirement for non-profit, government, and private sector child, youth, and family service providers throughout North America as well as in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and elsewhere. Cost-effectiveness, care planning, service evaluations, and fiscal audits are now commonplace with efforts to improve out-of-home care, education, and treatment outcomes. There is a growing expectation that service providers demonstrate accountability and achieve specific outcomes. The authors combine the Circle of Courage and the Search Institute Assets models to record developmental outcomes. (Contains 1 figure.)
