Cuyahoga Partnering for Family Success Process Evaluation

Cyleste Collins, Rong Bai, David Crompton, Chun Liu, Rob Fischer
The Cuyahoga Partnering for Family Success program stabilizes families through providing housing and increased levels of public assistance. Families receiving services show less involvement with child welfare. Clients’ experiences with domestic violence and service coordination across agencies were identified as important challenges to be addressed by program partners during continued implementation of the project.

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.
