Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to provide a process and outcome evaluation of the HMRF grant-funded Connections program. Phoenix Houses of New York, Inc. has been given a new grant to continue and refine its successful Connections program which equips single and coupled participants with significant substance use disorders (SUD) with the skills and knowledge needed to (1) create and/or sustain healthy relationships/marriages, (2) equip participants with the skills and knowledge to raise children in a functional and healthy environment, (3) improve their financial stability, job readiness and employability to improve economic self-sufficiency and responsibility, and (4) reduce relationship stress and strain on interactions between co-parents.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Relationship, Family Substance Use Parenting Behavioral: Within My Reach/ Within Our Reach

Detailed Description:

The process evaluation will focus on:

  • Documenting project implementations and determining efficient replication methods for effective program components,
  • Monitoring completion of overall program goals and objectives, and
  • Allow for quality improvement during the five year grant cycle.

The outcome evaluation which focuses on participant level impact will ask the following:

  • Does participation in evidence-based relationship education improve healthy relationship skills for single or coupled enrollees?
  • Does participation in partner education and support classes improve co-parenting relationship?
  • Do participants have better attitudes toward their ability to manage money (i.e. savings, paying bills) after workshops in financial literacy and other money management services?
  • Do participants have improved attitudes on their own employability after workshops targeted at job readiness?
  • Does participation in job readiness preparation translate into improved employment prospects or readiness factors? (Readiness factors may include increased family assets and economic status.)
  • Does participation in family care management sessions improve marriage/relationship, child and family well-being?
  • Does participation in parenting education improve parenting skills and attitudes toward parenting? Does participation in parenting education improve commitment to parenting and children?
