Building Strong Families, 2002-2013

The Building Strong Families (BSF) study, led by Mathematica, is a multi-site impact and implementation evaluation of healthy marriage and relationship education and support services offered to unwed parents at or near the birth of their child. The study documented the interim (15-months) and long-term (36-month) impacts of the services, how the program services were implemented, and participants’ experiences.
