Over recent decades, changes in labor markets and in family structure have created substantial barriers for fathers in maintaining stable employment and stable relationships with their children. These challenges are particularly pressing given that fathers’ financial and emotional support for their children provides a critical foundation for child well-being. In response, with funding from the Office of Family Assistance, the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation engaged MDRC to conduct the Building Bridges and Bonds (B3) study. The B3 study is rigorously testing new program approaches to support low-income fathers in working toward economic stability and improved relationships with their children. MDRC is partnering with MEF Associates, Abt SRBI, and Mathematica Policy Research to conduct this study.
