Strengthening Families and Responsible Fatherhood
Increasing fathers' involvement and strengthening relationships between parents have emerged as central national policy strategies to improve the lives of low-income families and enhance the well-being of children. We are conducting studies to increase understanding about how to engage fathers more fully, help low-income couples solidify their relationships, and create the best environments in which to raise children.
Child Support Noncustodial Parent Employment Demonstration (CSPED)
The National Child Support Noncustodial Parent Employment Demonstration is testing the effectiveness of programs that aim to increase employment among noncustodial parents, with the ultimate goal of increasing the likelihood that they meet their child support obligations.
Fathers and Continuous Learning in Child Welfare
Evidence suggests that positive father involvement can improve child well-being outcomes. This project will test the use of the Breakthrough Series Collaborative to strengthen the engagement of fathers and paternal relatives with children involved in the child welfare system.
