The Wraparound Maine Initiative relies on community collaborative boards (CCB) to play a major role in developing policies, ensuring that all eligible children/youth are being served, and leveraging local resources. To assess their progress to-date, evaluators from the Muskie School for Public Service at the University of Southern Maine administered an online survey to all known board members in February 2008. Seventy-three board members completed the survey (36%). A high majority had served on their board at least 6 months and up to one year. They reported experiencing many successes and challenges during implementation. The majority offered recommendations for improvement.
