Introduction

Several ACF programs interact with justice-involved parents and youth in an effort to promote economic self-sufficiency and social well-being for the individuals and their families. Across ACF, we are implementing rigorous research and evaluation projects to better understand how to serve this population.

Purpose

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services promotes the economic and social well-being of families, children, individuals, and communities. Several ACF programs interact with justice-involved and incarcerated parents and youth in an effort to promote economic self-sufficiency and social well-being for them and their families. We are implementing rigorous research and evaluation projects to better understand how to serve these parents and youth. OPRE publishes these briefs to describe ongoing research and evaluation projects related to justice-involved, incarcerated, and formerly incarcerated parents and youth.

This brief describes those ongoing projects, as well as ACF’s past research and evaluation efforts related to justice-involved, incarcerated, and formerly incarcerated parents and youth.
