The Center for Child Welfare Research
Research and program evaluation are important tools at The Children’s Village for improving programs and practice both at Children’s Village and in the field in general. The Center seeks to bridge the gap between practitioners and policy makers by bringing together the interests and strengths of those looking at the various systems that serve families from the outside with those serving the system from within. The Center for Child Welfare Research welcomes collaboration with universities, other child welfare organizations, and independent researchers. For information, contact Jeremy C.
