Founded in 1974, MDRC is committed to improving the lives of people with low incomes. We design promising new interventions, evaluate existing programs, and provide technical assistance to build better programs.
MDRC develops evidence about solutions to some of the nation’s most difficult problems. Explore our projects and variety of products, including publications, videos, podcast episodes, and resources for researchers and practitioners.
This project page showcases publications from MDRC projects that offer best practices for program operators serving fathers, many of which are also featured on the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse and Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood websites. These publications are designed to support the federal Administration for Children and Families, which funded most of MDRC’s technical assistance to fatherhood programs, with implementing its learning agenda to build a knowledge base for promoting program improvement and increasing positive outcomes for individual participants, couples, and their families.
