Final Report: South Jersey Strengthening Families Initiative

WRI’s outcome evaluation of the Whole Family Approach across 18 nonprofit collaborative organizations in Southern New Jersey indicates that families experienced significant improvements in the areas of healthy relationships, financial stability, and child well-being. The process evaluation described a family-focused, goal-oriented, flexible approach that can be implemented across organizations with diverse missions and communities. Over the last 10 years, thousands of families have been positively, measurably impacted by collaboratives implementing the Whole Family Approach. As the Pascale Sykes Foundation sunsets in December 2022, the Whole Family Approach’s flexibility and proactive focus can serve as a framework for future whole-family, goal-oriented, community-based social service provision efforts.
