Generational Opportunities to Achieve Long-Term Success (GOALS) Phase I Final Research Briefclick to download
The Generational Opportunities to Achieve Long-Term Success (GOALS) program provides comprehensive, residentially-based services to Arapahoe County families experiencing homelessness. Using a 2Gen framework, GOALS was initiated and developed collaboratively by Arapahoe County Human Services and Family Tree and is implemented through a partnership with Family Tree. The mission of GOALS is to effectively help families living in poverty gain stable housing, economic security, and family well-being. While providing these services, GOALS seeks to add to the body of evidence on the effectiveness of a 2Gen approach to helping vulnerable families escape poverty. The Phase I formative evaluation ran from January 2019 to June 2020 and served seven families.
This research brief summarizes the methodology, findings, and lessons learned from the Phase I formative evaluation, using qualitative interviews with families and stakeholders.
