These snapshots are intended for practitioners and researchers involved in designing, improving, or evaluating RF programs. They present four RF Pathways-to-Outcomes models that visually represent hypothesized links between program activities and intended outcomes. Each model reflects one of four outcome domains targeted by RF programs and measured in the PACT evaluation...

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.

Presented in a question and answer format, this brief provides a summary description of 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.

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...

The Strengthening the Implementation of Responsible Fatherhood Programs (SIRF) project will work closely with programs to identify and overcome the challenges they face, such as recruiting fathers, enrolling them in services, and keeping them actively engaged in services so they can realize their goals.
