In 2011, the Strengthening Families Program (SFP) 10–14 received a final program rating of Effective based on a review of studies by Spoth and colleagues (2003; 2004; 2008). In 2020, CrimeSolutions conducted a re-review of the same studies, using the updated CrimeSolutions Program Scoring Instrument, which resulted in a new final program rating of Promising. Studies that are rated as Promising show some evidence that the program achieved the intended effects on measured outcomes when implemented with fidelity.
