Network Outcomes

Evaluation of the Network in Philadelphia indicates that the program had strong positive effects on household food security, caregiver health, depressive symptoms, and employment. Furthermore, results are consistent in participants with high childhood adversity (4+ACEs). These results demonstrate a positive effect on health and well-being for individuals with exposure to violence and adversity.


The above data shows the self-reported positive impact of Network programming on members’ physical and mental health and employment as recorded through pre and post-program assessment surveys.
