The Building Strong Families Project: Initial implementation of couples-focused employment program.

The Couples Employment (CE) project, operated by the Center for Urban Families (CFUF) in Baltimore, Maryland, addressed whether a voluntary intervention for couples might address employment and relationship problems simultaneously. This report documents the initial implementation of employment-related services offered to couples by CFUF. Findings draw on: ongoing communication with CFUF staff; an in-depth site visit to Baltimore in January 2009 that included focus groups with participating couples; and CFUF’s management information system (MIS) data from 2008, which include client characteristics and service receipt.
