Presents data from a process/formative evaluation of the Real Alternatives Project, a community based substance abuse prevention program for high risk adolescents in Berkeley, CA. The challenge of integrating diverse services for a multicultural population required the establishment of an innovative provider role that of the community case counselor. Described is the process of role identity among these case counselors within the context of a developing program. Their role evolved from simple case managers to that of generalists. Serving as case managers, counselors, mentors, role models, \& advocates, they met clients' multiple needs. Organizational needs were met through their role in implementing \& integrating services \& their participation in decision making. The evaluation documented \& legitimized this process of role \& program evolution. The importance of incorporating process evaluation as an equal partner in program development \& implementation is discussed. 29 References. Adapted from the source document.
