Description

In the ideal world, male caregivers would seek out services to support their child or children. However, the reality is that men struggle seeking out services. The negative consequences may result in a disconnection between father and child, child behavior, and could result in single parent households. Therefore, through research on male caregiver preference on staff and services based of their geographic location could result in a higher participation of men seeking services at Family Services. The purpose of this study is to figure out whether male caregivers have a preference on staff or the services provided by the Family Service agency based on the clients’ geographic location. This study will help determine whether male caregivers prefer certain type of staff or services that will potentially lead them to seek out for support. This study will be helpful to agencies working with father to help make adjustments in order to increase male clients.. Using a quantitative research design, this study attempts to determine if staff and services have an impact on male caregivers seeking services based of their geographic location. The survey will be conducted to improve the quality of staff and services. The purpose is to increase male caregiver participants within the agency’s programs in hopes to engage male caregivers positively amongst their households. The sample will be selected using a convenience sampling method. The survey will be given to clients in order to determine the effectiveness of the services being provided by staff members. The survey would help determine whether staff and services have an impact on male caregivers and their participation within the agency. The questions ask on the amount of children or youth they are responsible for, the types of services they have received, feedback from clients to determine recruiting strategies, and for ideas when working with male caregiver. Through the research, it is expected that staff and services have a positive impact on clients receiving services at the family social service agency. It is expected to have a positive correlation between staff and services provided at the agency and the likelihood of male caregivers seeking the social services.
