LifeSet is a therapeutic case management program that provides youth and young adults leaving foster care, juvenile justice, and mental health systems with the intensive in-home support and guidance they need in the transition to adulthood. The current LifeSet evaluation has two main components: an impact study to assess the effects of program participation on outcomes of interest and an implementation study to describe and document how LifeSet is implemented in New Jersey. The study is intended to contribute to the evidence base on program models that support young adults in the transition out of foster care. Project activities for the impact study include three waves of youth surveys and collection of administrative and program data. Project activities for the implementation study include interviews and focus groups with key staff and study youth. To date, the team has completed cognitive testing of the young adult study consent form (Appendix A) as discussed in Supporting Statement B4. The team has also begun random assignment of youth though no data has been collected. In response to findings from the cognitive testing of the young adult consent form, we are requesting non-substantive changes to the baseline youth survey (Instrument 1), young adult consent form (Appendix A), youth assent form (Appendix B), and study fact sheets (Appendix E). These non-substantive changes will ensure that impact study participants are able to understand the informed consent materials. The proposed changes do not alter the purpose of the data collection, the expected uses of the data, nor the burden estimates as approved by OMB in September 2021.
