This report is organized in distinct sections. The background (p.2) presents a brief review of theliterature, national and statewide statistics relevant to parenting, an overview of the Long Distance Dads program, and a description of the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections and the State Correctional Institution at Albion. The objectives section (p.11) states the specific goals of the project and describes process evaluations in general. The methods section (p.12) details the procedures utilized to answer the questions of the evaluation (i.e., the description of the collection of both qualitative and quantitative data). The results (p.14) are separated into the four phases of the project. Within each phase section, we first present a brief summary of the specific goals, describe the sampling methodology used in each phase, review the demographics of the sample, and then present the results for each phase. The recommendations section (p.53) provides the overall interpretation of the data coupled with recommendations for programoptimization linking the findings to a proposed outcomes study.
