The present study used national, multi-site data to determine the efficacy of the model programs implemented. The data (N=l,080) for the study was the Family Strengthening Initiative funded by the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP). Data were collected using the cross-site instrument developed by CSAP and the Program Coordinating Center (PCC) staff. All study sites utilized a longitudinal, pre- and post-test design. Measures included the constructs of family resilience, family conflict, family cohesion, and family attachment. Findings from analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) showed differential effects of these model programs. For family attachment and family cohesion, the Nurturing Parenting Program appeared to be the most effective among all the model programs tested (p<.05). It is concluded that community-based organizations adopting these family-focused programs need to consider the outcome factors that are most relevant to their program.
