Title: Home Visiting: Approaches to Father Engagement and Father's Experiences.

OMB No.: New Collection.

Description: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is proposing a data collection activity as part of the Home Visiting: Approaches to Father Engagement and Father's Experiences study. This study will document strategies used by selected home visiting programs to engage and serve fathers and the perceptions and experience of participating fathers. The findings will be of utility for many home visiting programs that desire to increase the active engagement of fathers to support the positive development of children as well as to organizations which provide oversight and technical assistance to home visiting programs. Through semi-structured discussions, respondents will be asked to comment on the most important strategies to support and facilitate fathers' participation.

Respondents: Administrators and key staff of selected home visiting programs, home visitors, and selected participating fathers and mothers.
