“The evaluation data indicates that families who participated in the Whole Family Approach had stronger family relationships, a reduction in financial challenges over time, and improved educational outcomes and aspirations. Another key finding was the flexibility of the Whole Family Approach and of the non-profit organizations implementing the Approach, as they were able to tailor the services and support they provided to families and children in the communities they served.”
