The Center for Family Policy and Research (CFPR) was established in 1997 to serve as a resource for the development of effective public policies relating to children, youth and families. With a focus on integration of research, policy and practice, CFPR:
- conducts research and disseminates evidence-based findings to inform policymakers and to enhance program development;
- facilitates collaboration and provides leadership for systems-building efforts at the local, state and national levels; and
- works in communities to provide education and support services to programs that serve children, youth and families.
