Many nonprofits and government agencies are looking for ways to support the
needs of low-income families by helping parents take steps toward economic
security while improving their children’s well-being. Programs that offer coordinated services to parents and their children—sometimes called two-generation programs—provide many different combinations of supports, often by partnering with other organizations (Sama Miller and Baumgartner 2017). Participating in research and evaluation can help program leaders and staff refine their services and program models and find better ways to coordinate supports for families.
