Decision makers like caseworkers, community leaders, agency directors and legislators want to know what works. That’s where Chapin Hall steps in. Chapin Hall combines rigorous research methods to generate evidence, while providing implementation support to apply that evidence in the field.
Experts work alongside community and agency partners to build more effective services and systems, accelerate the use of evidence in practice, and better serve children, youth, and families.
In all our work, we aim to produce relevant, timely, and actionable solutions, and support partners in developing practical tools and strategies based on evidence.

Chapin Hall engages in direct, purposeful collaboration. We partner with all levels of government, non-profit organizations, philanthropists, fellow researchers, and others who work tirelessly to address challenges facing children, youth, and families in the United States and beyond.
Chapin Hall serves as a steward of administrative data from a number of public agencies. In this role, we are responsible for ensuring that those data are secure at all times. We regularly review security protocols to ensure that appropriate physical, administrative, and technical controls are in place to guarantee confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all data. Data are used only (1) with the expressed permission of the source agency; (2) for the explicit purpose(s) approved by the source agency; and (3) to benefit the source agency and (by extension) the individuals and families the source agency serves. Chapin Hall ensures that research using those data is aligned with Chapin Hall’s mission, relevant to the data sharing partner agency, and reviewed by the cognizant Institutional Review Board (IRB).
As an independent, nonpartisan policy research center, Chapin Hall adheres to the values of science, meeting the highest standards of ethics, integrity, rigor, and objectivity in its research, analyses, and reporting.
