The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, under a contract with IMPAQ International and its partners, has launched the new “Strengthening Families Curriculum Resource Guide” website. This is the first website that provides a tool to help individuals review and compare both Responsible Fatherhood/Parenting and Healthy Marriage/Relationship curricula.
The website was developed by IMPAQ utilizing a coding process that reviewed 49 Responsible Fatherhood/Parenting and Healthy Marriage/Relationship curricula to produce an online overview. This online overview documents for each curriculum, the major topics and implementation requirements and guidelines that are commonly used by ACF-funded organizations.
“Until now there has been no way to comparison shop if you wanted to purchase a curriculum. This new website lets you do just that”, stated Anne Chamberlain, Senior Research Associate in IMPAQ’s Human Services division. “Additionally, the website gives the user the ability to filter their search by variables that are relevant in context or important to their community.”
Strengthening Families Curriculum Resource Guide is primarily focused on providing resources for Responsible Fatherhood/Parenting and Healthy Marriage/Relationship program staff, grantees, grant applicants, and researchers.
IMPAQ’s Human Services and Technology Solutions divisions subcontracted with Public Strategies Inc. (PSI), CLH Strategies and Solutions, and project consultant – Allison Hyra.
