Synopsis: Project T.E.A.M. is a wraparound service delivery model that serves at-risk youth and their families, with a goal to increase the number and strength of community connections. This study examined ethnic differences in community connections and clinical functioning for 80 youth enrolled in Project T.E.A.M. over the course of one year. Both groups demonstrated significant improvement in functioning after one year. Furthermore, minority youth demonstrated a significant increase in community connections after one year, while the number of connections for Caucasian youth remained the same. Further results and implications for treatment and service planning will be discussed.
