In an effort to support child serving agencies in our community, CFCR’s Research Team develops and executes ambitious research agendas on key issues relevant to identified priority areas, often in partnership with other agencies and universities. This effort involves analyzing relevant research and data about children, synthesizing literature on best practice, utilizing research to inform policy and community initiatives, and writing comprehensive research reports.
Research Interns will have the opportunity to help collect and analyze county specific data, research and explore interventions that have a community level impact, and assist in issue specific projects identified by the team. Interns will gain knowledge of the numerous systems that support children and families and be able to identify gaps in those systems to develop creative community solutions.
