These snapshots are intended for practitioners and researchers involved in designing, improving, or evaluating HMRE programs. They present three HMRE Pathways-to-Outcomes models that visually represent hypothesized links between program activities and intended outcomes. Each model reflects an aspect of program design and implementation...

The webinar presents three Pathways-to-Outcomes models for HMRE programs serving adult couples that use research evidence to depict how program activities may influence intended outcomes. Each model reflects an aspect of program design and implementation: (1) curriculum and delivery, (2) maximizing participation, and (3) addressing couple and individual characteristics.

The webinar presents four “Pathways-to-Outcomes” models for Responsible Fatherhood (RF) programs, each focusing on one outcome domain measured in the Parents and Children Together (PACT) evaluation: (1) healthy relationships between co-parents, (2) father development and well-being, (3) consistent employment; and (4) parenting skills and father involvement.

In 2019, the Administration for Children and Family’s (ACF) Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) contracted with Mathematica and its subcontractor, Public Strategies, to conduct the Strengthening the Implementation of Marriage and Relationship Programs (SIMR) project. SIMR’s goal is to understand implementation challenges faced by healthy marriage and relationship education (HMRE) programs and identify and test potential solutions to those challenges.

 

This report describes how researchers in prevention science and public health partnered with practitioners who deliver youth healthy marriage and relationship education (HMRE) programs to translate the concept of co-regulation into action.

This report describes efforts to develop a survivor-centered theoretical framework. It also explains the processes used to develop, test, and refine a set of theoretically based performance measures for program assessment of the National Domestic Violence Hotline (The Hotline®) and presents results of a program assessment using data from The Hotline.

The Strengthening the Implementation of Marriage and Relationship Programs (SIMR) project aims to identify key implementation challenges facing healthy marriage and relationship education (HMRE) programs and, in close collaboration with HMRE programs and their staff, test potential solutions to those challenges using rapid-learning techniques.

The Strengthening Relationship Education and Marriage Services (STREAMS) evaluation is a random assignment impact study and in-depth process study of five healthy marriage and relationship education (HMRE) grantees funded by the Office of Family Assistance (OFA) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). To maximize its contributions to the evidence base and to inform future program and evaluation design, STREAMS is examining the full range of populations...

Financial support from fathers can lead to important improvements in child well-being. Financial support from noncustodial fathers, often provided through formal child support payments, can make up a substantial part of the income of single-parent families and lead to reductions in child poverty (ACF 2016; Sorensen 2010; Meyer et al. 2008; Takayesu 2011). Child well-being can be improved when child support programs enable and enforce fathers’ financial support for children...

Hotlines for victims and survivors of domestic violence and/or dating violence (DV) are an important source of information and support for individuals seeking intervention and preventative care services. However, evaluation research on the impact of these programs is not widely available. The Accomplishments of the Domestic Violence Hotline, Online Connections, and Text (ADVHOCaT) project describes the activities and short-term outcomes for those contacting the...
