Texas CASA contracted with Dr. Cynthia Osborne and the Child and Family Research Partnership (CFRP) at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas at Austin to evaluate the Collaborative Family Engagement (CFE) process and over the first six years of CFE implementation the team has evaluated numerous aspects of CFE.
