Child Support Program Approaches to Enhancing Father Engagement

On behalf of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation, Mathematica is conducting a study to understand key programmatic approaches to father engagement across practice fields. As part of this study, Mathematica is hosting a webinar on child support program approaches to enhancing father engagement. Mathematica will moderate a panel of fatherhood engagement experts from child support programs in Georgia, Texas, and Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. Program representatives will speak about their father-focused programs, strategies they use to enhance father engagement to promote family self-sufficiency and strengthen father involvement in children’s lives, partnerships critical to father engagement, and father engagement during the COVID-19 pandemic.
