Annotation: This catalog presents findings from a systematic review of research studies that describe and analyze programs that target and serve low-income fathers. It explains how the research studies were identified; how the information included in the study profiles was collected; and how the ability of each study's design to determine program effectiveness was rated. Within each of three different study types reviewed (impact, implementation, and descriptive), profiles are arranged alphabetically by program name and divided into eight sections to help users identify information of interest. These sections include study information, study and sample characteristics, reported outcomes, the program model, program structure, staffing and operations, recruitment, and participation. The appendices include a description of the search strategies used to identify published and unpublished research studies; a description of impact studies; and a summary of the rating criteria used.
