Individuals with a criminal justice background (either incarcerated or on community supervision) and substance use issues will have the opportunity to enroll in services provided by the Mountain Comprehensive Care Center to focus on enhancing fatherhood and family situations.
The primary research questions focus on gauging the intervention's effectiveness in improving healthy relationship and responsible fatherhood outcomes. The intervention has several components targeting parenting skills, job training, relationship education, and case management/reentry support. Primary research questions include:
1. Compared to the counterfactual condition, what is the impact of the intervention on parenting and co-parenting skills/behaviors, as measured by parental role satisfaction and confidence in parenting skills six months after release from incarceration?
2. Compared to the counterfactual condition, what is the impact of the intervention on the likelihood that the participant will be employed six months after release from incarceration?
3. Compared to the counterfactual condition, what is the impact of the intervention on the likelihood that the participant will be in a relationship six months after release from incarceration?
