Evidence-based Interventions

Children and families deserve the most effective interventions to meet their needs and support children’s safety, permanency, and well-being. Child Trends’ research and evaluation experts serve as trusted, objective partners in building the evidence base for interventions across the child welfare continuum. We develop and conduct formative studies (i.e., feasibility, implementation, and outcome studies) and rigorous impact studies, including quasi-experimental studies and randomized controlled trials. Our team designs all evaluations in close partnership with public and private partners, so our findings are used to build program and system capacity.
