This resource is the final report of the QIC's research project on NonResident Fathers (NRF). There were three primary project goals: 1. To promote innovation, evidence-based practice improvements, and advancement of knowledge about child welfare outcomes by involving NRFs through experimental research designs testing promising practices. 2. To establish a national problem-solving and collaborative information-sharing network among sub-grantees, the Children’s Bureau TA network, public child welfare agencies, private service providers, fatherhood and healthy marriage groups, and other stakeholders about the involvement of NRFs and child welfare outcomes. 4 3. To build evidence and knowledge that answers the question: “Is there a difference in child and family outcomes based on NRF involvement?” and that points at effective practices related to the improvement of child welfare outcomes through the involvement of NRFs. This final report covers the research that went into achieving each goal and summarizes the QIC's findings.
