Assessing the Field of Post-Adoption Services: Family Needs, Program Models, and Evaluation Issues. Summary Report. Case Studies


The case study component of this project used interviews with state adoption program managers and post-adoption service (PAS) providers as well as focus groups with adoptive parents across five states. The case study report focuses on services that fall within each states definitions of its PAS program, although these boundaries vary somewhat across states. Also examined are how states use subsidies and other forms of support to assist adoptive families. Evaluation issues within the case-study states are discussed in the summary of the Evaluation Issues Report, Section 4.
