What We Do
Children and Family Futures’ research and evaluation team provides evaluation support to the agencies we serve. Our approach reflects the social, cultural, and policy environments of communities in which we work. We prioritize empowering vulnerable populations and developing capacity at the federal, tribal, state, and local levels. We have a skilled team of experts to create monitoring and evaluation plans and track progress toward joint goals and accountability for cross-systems collaborative partnerships.
About Our Services
Our research and evaluation goal is to measure program effectiveness in improving the safety, permanency, well-being, and recovery outcomes for children, youth, adults, and families affected by trauma, substance use, and mental disorders who are involved in child welfare and court systems.
For over 20 years, we have earned a national reputation for our independent program evaluations and use of customized applied research methodologies. We have a track record of delivering useful, high-quality program evaluation and applied research findings.
We provide research and evaluation support to state, tribal, and local efforts to address the needs of children and families, particularly those at the intersection of substance use, mental health, and child welfare services.
