Abstract

The Children’s Board of Hillsborough County, the Family and School Support Teams (FASST) program, and its provider agencies (the Children’s Home, Northside Mental Health Center, Mental Health Care and the Hispanic Services Council) participated in this research project to develop strategies that support, improve, and sustain best practice in local programs.

Developing Sustainable Infrastructure in Support of Quality Field-Based
Practice (SIP) investigates how the CBHC can maximize investment in locally developed programs and promote, implement, and sustain best practice for positive child and family outcomes.

These documents report on Phases I, II and III of SIP. Also included is the FASST Implementation Toolkit so the process of intervention and implementation assessment can be applied to other agencies or initiatives.

SIP Phase I Report 11-30-07

This document reports on Phase I of SIP. The purpose of Phase I was twofold: 1) to examine the community context and infrastructure in which FASST operates; and 2) to define the FASST community-based model through the identification of core intervention components. The goal of Phase I was to determine what core intervention components establish the FASST model and contribute to its success.

SIP Phase II Report 12-31-08

This document reports on Phase II of SIP. The purpose of Phase II was to determine and describe what is needed to maintain program fidelity of a locally developed program through the identification of core implementation components and examination of community context and infrastructure. The goal of this phase was to identify and describe the core implementation components necessary for the success of Hillsborough County’s Family and School Support Team (FASST) program.

SIP Phase III Report 10-31-09

The purpose of Phase III was to develop strategies for sustaining community infrastructure that have broad applicability across local programs. This includes the development of a toolkit so the process of intervention and implementation assessment can be applied to other agencies or initiatives.

FASST Implementation Toolkit

The FASST Implementation Toolkit was developed based on finding from Phases I - III of the SIP project and the contributions of the SIP Research Advisory Board. It has been designed to support implementation of the FASST program as intended based on the current program theory.
