We provide research, evaluation, and implementation support to clients and partners with the goal of optimizing interventions for participants and communities, increasing program enrollment, and improving outcomes and impact.

Inclusive Employment/Economic Stability

Opportunity Youth/Justice-Involved Youth

Foster Youth and Youth from Underserved Communities

We evaluate and support government- and philanthropy-funded youth programs—with a strong emphasis on engaging foster youth, justice-involved youth, and opportunity youth—to improve inclusion in school, work, enterprise, and other activities that offer the opportunity for building skills, relationships, economic security, and purpose.

Grantmaking/Effective Advocacy

We provide strategic learning, evaluation, and advisory support to philanthropic foundations, partners, and stakeholders seeking to advance equity in the provision of community health services, and we collaborate with these partners to strengthen advocacy and improve policy at the local, regional, or state levels.

Income Guarantees and Cash Supports

We are among an emerging cadre of research organizations partnering with states, local governments, foundations, and community organizations to explore and evaluate income guarantees as a vehicle for economic security and well-being.
