The relationship between work and family life is central to the productivity and well-being of America’s citizens. The Center’s work in this area focuses on how public policies and programs support adults in their multiple roles. The goal is to understand and influence policies that promote healthy family life, with emphasis placed on fatherhood, unmarried couples, at-risk families, child support enforcement, and family support/prevention programs.
