Home Visiting: Approaches to Father Engagement and Fathers' Experiences, 2013-2015
The Home Visiting: Approaches to Father Engagement and Fathers' Experiences Study is a qualitative project that will collect information about innovative approaches used by existing home visiting programs to actively engage and serve fathers, and gather fathers’ perspectives on participating in such programs. The study will involve interviews with program staff, home visitors, fathers, and mothers to document 1) program operators’ successes and challenges around engaging fathers, 2) the views and opinions of fathers who have been invited to and/or participated in home visiting programs, and 3) lessons for other programs that work with men (e.g., Responsible Fatherhood programs) and programs interested in more fully engaging men in their programs. The project is being conducted by the Urban Institute.
The points of contact are Anna Solmeyer and Amanda Clincy.
