Our mission is to provide high-quality public health research and evaluation services to improve outcomes for children and families across the country.  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 affect results.  Analysis of quantitative and qualitative data are used to better predict and explain the results of work across communities.  Our work is family-centered, community-based, and culturally competent.
