Parents and Children Together: Spotlight on Responsible Fatherhood Programs and the Men They Serve

Dec 2017

Research shows that fathers want to be involved in their children’s lives. For many low-income fathers, complex and interrelated life challenges can limit their ability to be present and provide for their children. The desire to address these challenges is the motivation for many fathers to enroll in a Responsible Fatherhood (RF) grant program, which provides services in parenting education, employment and economic stability, and healthy marriage and relationship skills. Through the Parents and Children Together (PACT) evaluation, conducted on behalf of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families (Office of Family Assistance and Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation), Mathematica researchers are contributing to the evidence base regarding approaches to increase positive father involvement in children’s lives. On December 7, a powerful discussion with PACT researchers, RF program administrators, and RF program participants, shared their experiences and what they learned.
