Joyful Together® Research

Joyful Together® Research

We use research to evaluate the effectiveness of Joyful Together® in the lives of families.

Evidence-Based Prevention Practice

We currently are conducting several studies so that we can dive into the diverse impacts our programs have on children, families, and communities.

In 2021 the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund (OCTF) identified Joyful Together as an evidence-based secondary prevention practice. Joyful Together® met the criteria for a prevention practice that strengthens protective factors and resilience of parents/caregivers, and provides home-based parent/caregiver education and support.
