Webinar 7/23/20: How Responsible Fatherhood Program Activities May Lead to Intended Outcomes

Responsible Fatherhood (RF) programming has grown out of research demonstrating the importance of father involvement in family life, specifically to reduce child poverty. RF programs funded by the Administration for Children and Families offer activities designed to strengthen positive father-child engagement, improve social and economic outcomes for fathers and their families, improve healthy couple and co-parenting relationships, and promote or sustain healthy marriage. To support development of future programs and guide research, Mathematica, as part of the Parents and Children Together (PACT) evaluation, developed four models that hypothesize how program activities may lead to intended outcomes. The hypotheses address:

  1. Improving fathers’ co-parenting relationships
  2. Supporting fathers’ development and well-being
  3. Improving fathers’ employment and economic stability
  4. Enhancing fathers’ parenting skills and increasing involvement in their children’s lives

During the webinar, the PACT team will describe the work conducted to develop these models and introduce each model. The webinar will provide ideas for program activities that RF practitioners can consider, and potentially test, as part of their programs.
