Process Evaluation The process evaluation is designed to assess the fidelity of grantees to implement their proposed program model, and consists of young person focus groups, young person surveys, youth mentor focus groups, transitional program personnel interviews and surveys, and local and state administrator interviews. Process evaluation data will be collected in two waves during FY 2012 and during FY 2014 and, with the exception of the state administrator interviews, participants are not expected to participate more than one time during the 2 waves of data collection. Outcome Evaluation The outcome evaluation is designed to assess outcomes of youth and young adults in regards to education, employment, housing, mental health and co-occurring disorders, and involvement with the juvenile and criminal justice systems. The outcome evaluation will utilize both an enhanced and standard data collection and a longitudinal cohort design, and will include a comparative study to assess the effectiveness of HTI relative to a similar sample of young persons who did not receive HTI services. In the standard data collection protocol, outcome data will be collected for each HTI young adult participant, at a minimum of, at baseline at least every 6 months for up to 24 months for as long as the participant remains in HTI services. Enhanced outcome data will be collected on a subsample of young adults at 6 month intervals. The enhanced protocol will continue even after the young person from the subsample has left or has been discharged from HTI services, for up to 24 months. The baseline and follow up outcome instruments include the following key indicators: Demographic information, service use, education, employment/vocational training, housing and living situation, clinical outcomes, behavioral and other health, trauma-related experiences, life skills, parenting skills and supports, involvement with juvenile or criminal justice systems, and social and peer relationships. While participants are enrolled in HTI services, these data collected by the HTI grantees as specified in the RFA. The HTI Data Center (HTI DC) will be developed for data collection and management. The HTI DC will be a secure Web site that allows uploading of data, real-time access to data by grantees, and production of automated reports for the sites. It is flexible for local use and simplifies the management, monitoring, and reporting of data.
