To help document 2Gen’s implementation, capture the experiences of the families 2Gen serves, and build staff’s capacity to strengthen program delivery.
Agape and the Annie E. Casey Foundation sought to refine 2Gen to deepen the supports its families received. Mathematica’s content and methodological expertise, and our history of working to support communities of color and people experiencing low income, positioned us as a partner for these efforts.
Agape Child & Family Services
The Annie E. Casey Foundation
Mathematica initially partnered with Agape to document 2Gen’s implementation and the experiences of the families who were being served. Building on this work, we are integrating research, evaluation, and technical assistance to strengthen services for two of 2Gen’s programs given opportunity areas that COVID-19 revealed or reinforced. Using LI2 and the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s (Casey) Race, Equity, and Inclusion Framework, we are actively collaborating with Agape, program stakeholders, and Casey to build staff’s capacity to meet families’ needs during and beyond the pandemic.
