Subject:Re: Cost of foster care placement

Prevent Child Abuse America commissioned a paper on costs in 2012. This may be of interest. http://www.preventchildabuse.org/images/research/PCA_COM2012.pdf Betty Wade Coyle Executive Director Emeritus Prevent Child Abuse Hampton Roads ucantbeatkids@yahoo.com ________________________________ From: Mary Haskett To: "Child-Maltreatment-Research-L@cornell.edu" Sent: Friday, December 18, 2015 10:07 PM Subject: Cost of foster care placement I am working with a team to conduct a return-on-investment analysis for a child abuse prevention program in NC. As part of this process, we need to determine the cost of foster care placement. Does anyone have a recommendation for a publication and/or other source to estimate these costs? I realize this is an incredibly complex issue to "cost" (will vary by state, which costs are included, immediate vs. long-term costs, etc). We are considering all aspects of the costs and would appreciate your recommendations. Thank you all-- Mary Haskett -- Mary E.
