FRPN Measurement Resources

As part of our work to promote the evaluation of fatherhood programs, the FRPN is developing research measures that help to assess outcomes or moderating variables among the fathers participating in those programs. Each measure includes a corresponding video that provides a brief training on how to use the measure.


Our Focus

The FRPN includes three programmatic focus areas:

Responsible fatherhood: Programs or interventions to increase positive father engagement with children.

Economic security: Programs or interventions to increase father's ability to support themselves and their children and families economically.

Coparenting/healthy relationships: Programs or interventions to increase parenting time and support stable and positive coparental relationships and healthy relationships.



FRPN Grantees

The first group of FRPN grantees includes four projects that are evaluating U.S. fatherhood programs. Each involve randomized-controlled trials (RCTs); are led by researcher/practitioner teams; and involve the collection of data from program participants and/or staff at pre and post-program time points to assess changes in father-child relationships and coparenting.
