The Fatherhood Research and Practice Network, 2013-2018

Project Overview

The Fatherhood Research and Practice Network is a cooperative agreement awarded to Temple University. The Network will pursue three goals: 1) plan, initiate, and carry out a research agenda to build an evidence base for effective responsible fatherhood interventions and the development of appropriate measures; 2) develop capacity within the evaluator and practitioner communities to conduct and participate in high-quality evaluation studies; and 3) disseminate findings and best practices. The Network will primarily focus on economically disadvantaged and other under-studied populations of fathers and families.

The points of contact are Lauren Supplee and Anna Solmeyer.
