Synopsis: The purpose of the study was to assess the effectiveness of wraparound at producing better outcomes for children in the foster care system living in high-level group care, or at risk of such a placement setting. The evaluation, part of the Title IV-E Child Welfare Waiver Demonstration Project in California, used a posttest-only control group design and multiple data sources, including administrative-level child welfare data. Overall, children receiving wraparound did not have higher levels of safety, placement stability, or permanence, though two findings suggested a positive effect in specific areas.
