This report investigates how low-income fathers participating in responsible fatherhood (RF) programs perceive and provide support for their children. It uses both quantitative and qualitative information collected on fathers as part of the Parents and Children Together (PACT) evaluation, a multi-component evaluation of RF programs for low-income fathers funded by grants awarded by Administration for Children and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Findings presented in this report build on earlier PACT RF evaluation efforts by combining information from the qualitative and impact studies conducted as part of PACT.
