Cuyahoga Partnering for Family Success Process Evaluation
In 2015, Cuyahoga County launched the nation’s first county-level Pay for Success project (later named Partnering for Family Success) in the combined areas of homelessness and child welfare. In Pay for Success structures, governments have greater resources to tackle social problems by tapping into private investments for the upfront costs of the programs.
This evaluation report details process findings from the first stages of the Partnering for
Family Success program, presenting data on foster care exits and exit types, demographic information, risk factors, and program trends that subsequently informed the remaining years of program implementation.
