Synopsis: Few studies have examined parents and caregiver outcomes associated with receiving FS services. In part, this is a function of the limited availability of measures responsive to parents and caregivers needs. This pilot study developed a unified data measurement system including journey mapping, family outcomes (FANS) and empowerment standards within 16 independent FS programs in 19 Counties in Western NYS. The focus of this abstract is to describe the development of the FANS outcomes tool and to examine the prevalence of needs and needs met using the FANS for families who received FS.
