This report describes the major research investments of our Division of Family Strengthening through Fiscal Year 2019. This division has primary responsibility for research and evaluation projects related to healthy relationships, parenting, youth transitions to adulthood, and community connections. OPRE’s research in the area of family strengthening includes mothers, fathers, couples, families, children, and youth.

Qualitative research, which explores how or why something occurs, can contribute new knowledge to the understanding of home visiting. While qualitative research is sometimes viewed as a less rigorous add-on to quantitative research, studies utilizing qualitative research methods—whether part of a mixed-methods or as a standalone approach—can be rigorously designed to provide reliable and trustworthy information.

This work is part of the Design Options for Home Visiting Evaluation (DOHVE) project, led by OPRE in collaboration with HRSA. ACF has partnered with JBA to conduct the DOHVE project.
