This guide is designed to assist state policymakers in their consideration of policies related to low-income families. It is intended to provide simple and concrete information about the challenges facing low-income fathers and offers a range of feasible policy alternatives that directly confront these barriers. Because more mothers and children leave the welfare rolls due to employment, sanctions and time limits, it is vital that these families have access to the emotional and financial contributions that fathers can make. The policies discussed here are designed to highlight ways that states can help to guarantee this goal by ensuring children benefit from two involved parents--even if parents are unmarried.
