Kristen Faucetta
Research Associate, Family Well-Being and Children’s Development

Faucetta currently works on the Mother and Infant Home Visiting Evaluation (MIHOPE) project, which aims to assess the implementation and effects of home visiting programs intended to prevent child maltreatment, improve maternal and child health outcomes, and increase school readiness. She manages the acquisition, processing, and analysis of survey and assessment data collected from families in the study. She also works on a study that uses a daily diary measurement approach to catalog everyday family interactions among mothers, fathers, and adolescent children.

Prior to working on MIHOPE, Faucetta was the data manager and an impact team member for the Supporting Healthy Marriage Project (SHM), an evaluation of a marriage-education program targeting low-income, racially and ethnically diverse married couples. Before joining MDRC in 2011, Faucetta served as a Fulbright scholar in Bulgaria and worked at the NYC Department of Homeless Services. She did her undergraduate work in political science at Boston College and has a master’s degree from the Columbia University School of Social Work’s Policy Program.
