Child Welfare

Child welfare systems serve millions of children and families around the world. For decades, Chapin Hall has researched how these systems work and their impact on those they serve. We use that research to help child welfare jurisdictions improve performance, and to shape public policy to advance the use of evidence-based approaches across the child welfare field.
