Synopsis: Many children in out-of-home placement are from homes without the biological father. Replicating findings of a previous social worker survey, The Quality Improvement Center on Non-Resident Fathers, a project of the Children’s Bureau, found that engagement of fathers was a critical barrier in service provision. This presentation presents qualitative and quantitative results that lead to the engagement focus, and the initial results related to engagement from the resulting multiple site, random control trial.
