Guide to Fidelity Measurement for the Lifelong Families Model

Posted January 11, 2012, By the Annie E. Casey Foundation

This toolkit contains the 13 inventories and forms used to measure fidelity when applying the principles and components of Lifelong Families, a foster care practice model. The “guide” provides a complete list of each inventory or form (A-1 through E-2), as well as the specific use for it and who should complete it.

Casey Family Services, the Foundation's former direct service agency, developed the model. References to CFS refer to the role of the agency in implementing the model.
