In 2011, Healthy Families America (HFA) received a final program rating of Promising based on a review of a study by Dumont and colleagues (2010). In 2020, CrimeSolutions conducted a re-review of the same study, as well as a review of two additional studies (Jacobs et al. 2015; Green et al. 2016), using the updated CrimeSolutions Program Scoring Instrument. This re-review resulted in a new final rating of No Effects. Studies that are rated as No Effects have strong evidence indicating that the program had no or limited effects on measured outcomes when implemented with fidelity.
