Synopsis: A 3-level growth modeling approach was used to predict course of improvement for 595 Illinois youth in substitute care receiving community-based services at local agencies in catchment areas. Overall, youth improved while in the program. Further, intake characteristics such as risk factors and youth strengths predicted course of improvement across the service episode. Finally, community providers varied significantly in their average outcomes as predicted by the broader, community-level variable of rate of youth receiving free lunches at schools. Outcomes should be measured at multiple ecological levels in order to best address the needs of children in the system of care.
