This chapter examines the third major research question: Is one foster care program approach better than another in terms of outcomes? It was hypothesized that Casey alumni would exhibit more desirable outcomes than state alumni. To test this hypothesis, the relation between the location in which alumni were served (agency and state) and outcomes (e.g., PTSD in last twelve months, current employment) was examined after controlling for demographics and risk factors that were significant in a stepwise logistic regression.
