Investigation of Programs to Strengthen and Support Healthy Marriages

Abstract

This report highlights key components of current marriage education programs, identifies opportunities and challenges for expanding services into other service delivery systems, and provides recommendations for evaluations of healthy marriage programs. Researchers conducted a total of 58 telephone discussions with program providers and visited five geographic areas with multiple programs. Findings consider aspects of service delivery settings, target groups served, program scope, funding mechanisms, and collaborative relationships between marriage programs and other service delivery organizations.
