The main impetus for the development of systems of care in communities throughout the United States has been to provide a broad array of coordinated services to young people with severe multi-system needs (Stroul and Friedman, 1986). The purpose of this short report is to briefly describe the demographic make up of the young people served by the Dawn Project, a system of care in Marion County, Indiana. The demographic characteristics of two populations will be discussed: 1) the entire group of young people served by the Dawn Project from May 1997 through August 1, 2005 and 2) the subset of young people enrolled in the Dawn Project after October 31, 2000 that has participated in the federally-funded longitudinal evaluation.
