Current Projects


Children Who Foster

TCI is currently working with Utah Foster Care to understand the experiences of biological, step-, and adopted children in a foster home. If you are currently a foster parent with non-foster children living in the home in Northern Utah and wish to answer some questions about your experiences, please click the survey link to be directed to that site. Upon completion of the survey, you may enter your name into a drawing to win one of three $25.00 Walmart Card.

Children Who Foster Survey

TCI is also interviewing families who have non-foster children and are currently fostering. Interviews will ask families about their experiences and take approximately one hour to one and a half hours. Families will receive a $20.00 Walmart Gift Card for participating. The results will help inform Utah Foster Care's trainings for foster families. For more information, please contact, Dr. Jennifer Roark, USU Social Work Program at jennifer.roark@usu.edu.
