We partner with communities and community organizations to implement and evaluate programs intended to improve outcomes.
Training and Transitional Research
Many of our projects take research-based knowledge and translate it into practice. Our training programs target professionals in community-based settings such as early care and education, mental health, home visits, shelters, and substance abuse treatment.
We collaborate with community agencies to provide process and outcome evaluation of the implementation of interventions.
Research and Development
We develop new tools and interventions, test basic science hypotheses, and explore applied research questions.
