The Young Fathers’ Employment Program in Maryland: An Initial Review of Participant Outcomes

The Maryland Child Support Enforcement Administration (CSEA) recently funded a three-county noncustodial parent employment program called the Young Fathers’ Employment Program. The participating counties were Baltimore, Caroline, and Talbot. The University of Maryland School of Social Work conducted an initial review or a pre-post assessment of participants’ employment, earnings, and child support payments. The researchers examined the status of each indicator before participants enrolled in the employment program, and then examined changes that occurred in the subsequent year. The sample for this report includes 328 noncustodial parents who enrolled in the program between July 2011 and June 2014, each having one year of pre-enrollment data and one year of post-enrollment data.
