Proven Experience in Managing and Evaluating Projects

NPCL provided project management and evaluation support for an historic ten-city national demonstration project from September 2000-December 2003. This project, The Partners for Fragile Families Site Demonstration (PFF) recruited 6000 men to participate in the experiment. The men were given assistance with child support, employment, parenting skills, relationship education, housing and health care (physical and mental). The men enrolled PFF said: 1). They benefited from the peer support and time spent in the program; 2) the program facilitated increased parent-child contact and; 3) the program enabled them to increase their level of child support. The men also started and maintained jobs that paid family-sustaining wages. 

As a result of the PFF project, testimony was provide to the United States Congress which contributed to the first funding stream to provide grants to local agencies to both expand family programs to work with fathers, or to start new programs working with men and  fathers. The staff of NPCL know how to recruit men and fathers, retain them in programs, and enhance their level of responsibilty as fathers.
