This paper analyzes the findings of a survey taken by over 300 organizations across the U.S. who engage in male-focused programs and initiatives. It discusses the organizational capacity of the survey respondents, services they provide, demographic groups they serve, and geographic areas they support.
- The majority of respondent organizations had been operating for over 10 years, an encouraging finding given the history of attrition that exists in this area..
- Operating budgets were generally modest, though not considerably lower than those of public charities overall.
- The top three categories in which organizations reported providing services were educational services (78 percent), violence prevention (45 percent), and employment services (43 percent).
- Ninety-five percent of the organizations reported working with African-American males.
