Massachusetts Healthy Families Evaluation
574 Boston Avenue
In 2008, we began collecting data for the second phase of the HFM evaluation (MHFE-2). MHFE-2 is a randomized controlled trial designed not only to assess whether or not HFM is meeting its five stated long-term goals, but also to examine the ways in which participants' personal, family, program, and community contexts influence and/or explain program utilization and program outcomes. Study participants were randomly assigned to a program group (called the Home Visiting Services group [HVS]) or control group (Referrals and Information Only group [RIO]).
To date, TIER has collected three waves of data, which we are currently analyzing. Additionally, we are collecting fifth and sixth waves of data as part of the Massachusetts Healthy Families Evaluation-2 Early Childhood Study (MHFE-2-EC).
