Project IMPROVE: Options for Building Coaching Practices into TANF Programs: A Comparison of Five Models

This resource is for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program administrators who are interested in adopting coaching practices within their programs. It includes matrices that compare five employment coaching models that are in use today with TANF-eligible populations: Family Centered Coaching, Goal4 It!TM, the Human Services Coaching Framework, MyGoals for Employment Success, and Mobility Mentoring®. This resource also includes short snapshots that describe the key characteristics of each coaching model and contact information for their developers. Four are being used directly in a TANF setting and one can be adopted to a TANF setting. Project IMPROVE, funded by the Office of Family Assistance, aims to bridge the gap between human services research and practice.
