Project Relate LogoThe foundational project within Project Relate is the Oklahoma Marriage Initiative (OMI). Since the beginning of the project, leaders have maintained a strong commitment to grounding innovative activities on a foundation of sound research, to evaluating them in order to make mid-course adjustments and assess the results. As a part of this commitment, in 2001 Project Relate invited around a dozen national and state marriage and family scholars and educators to serve in an advisory capacity, with many continuing over the past decade (see list on the back page of the brief). Additionally, the group has diversified over time to include policy leaders, researchers, sociologists, and special guests representing expertise in low-income families, fatherhood, child welfare, and more.
