Research and Evaluation
WRMA provides research and evaluation expertise to federal, tribal, state, and local governments; foundations; and nonprofit agencies with the objective of improving the knowledge base from which to design, fund, implement, and improve health and human services. Our research focuses on the needs of vulnerable children and their families, wherever they are served: in child welfare, mental health, early education, or other health and human services programs. Our evaluations have been multi-site and multi-year, commonly collecting a wide range of data including client data, services data, cost data, and outcomes data. Using both quantitative and qualitative approaches, we are leaders in reducing data collection and reporting burdens on programs and individuals by maximizing the utilization of administrative data sets.
