Project Summary: 

The Wraparound Evaluation and Research Team seeks to improve the lives of children and their families through research on the implementation and outcomes of the wraparound process. Through development, refinement, and dissemination of the Wraparound Fidelity Assessment System, our team aims to assist implementation of the wraparound process, evaluate effectiveness, identify the need for technical assistance and training, and promote communication within the service delivery and research and evaluation fields. WERT also provides consultation and technical assistance to various types of wraparound providers, whether they be a small provider agency; a county level, multi-site effort; or a statewide system.  Depending on local need and evaluation goal, WERT can assist sites to develop a comprehensive evaluation, quality assurance, and data collection and interpretation plan, including fidelity assessment, system support audits, and outcomes evaluations using both primary data collection and administrative data. Contracts are set up on a site by site basis, depending on local need and resource.
