Hub Home Model for Foster Care Delivery
The 2016 Washington State Legislature directed WSIPP to evaluate the impact and cost effectiveness of the Mockingbird Family Hub Home Model for foster care delivery. In the Hub Home Model, families live nearby a Hub Home which offers support to the families.

WSIPP’s evaluation must include the impact the Hub Home Model has on child safety, permanency, placement stability, and if possible, sibling connections, culturally relevant care, and caregiver retention. Additionally, WSIPP will report on long-term cost savings compared to traditional foster care.

An interim report was released in January 2017. WSIPP's Board of Director's approved an extension on the report; the final report is due December 31, 2017.
