Levels and Consequences of Embeddedness Among Private Human Service Organizations: National survey evidence from child welfare

Using data from the National Survey of Private Child and Family Serving Agencies (NSPCFSA), this study assesses the degree to which private child welfare organizations report fiscal and relational embeddedness with public agencies and the influence of embeddedness on organizational functioning overall and in four specific domains: finances, service programming, staffing, and performance. Results showed that embeddedness may positively influence organizations’ operations, including staff performance and service programming.
