Our mission is to provide high-quality public health research and evaluation services to improve outcomes for public health initiatives and track progress through performance measures and process evaluation.  We work with federal, state, and local government, private nonprofit, and for-profit organizations to collect data on outcomes, performance measures and process measures which are used to better understand how services effect results.  Analysis of quantitative and qualitative data are used to better predict and explain the results of work and we use a community based participatory research approach which is family-centered, community-based, and culturally competent.
