Programs: For over 100 years, our research has informed better system responses at all points of contact. We work to help protect children from abuse and neglect, to create safe and rehabilitative justice systems for youth and adults, and to address the needs of older adults and adults with disabilities. Within these systems we also study the unique concerns of girls, LGBT individuals, and overrepresented racial and ethnic groups.

NCCD’s Children’s Research Center (CRC) collaborates with jurisdictions around the world to use research to improve service delivery to children and families. NCCD’s Center for Girls and Young Women addresses the needs of justice-involved girls by providing research-based, gender-specific training, technical assistance, and curricula to providers in the juvenile justice system.

NCCD conducts qualitative and quantitative research on various issues in the child welfare, juvenile justice, education, criminal justice, and adult protective service systems. We also look at unique populations’ experiences of these systems, including people of color and LGBT individuals.

NCCD also provides extensive training and technical assistance around these issues to a variety of stakeholders. These include social service agencies, court personnel, law enforcement, and criminal justice agencies, as well as agency trainers and educators.

NCCD’s research-based, mission-driven services and assessment systems give social service agencies the benefit of a skilled and responsive team combined with powerful tools to help agency staff. Structured Decision Making® (SDM) systems help social service workers make consistent decisions and focus resources on those most in need. Agency administrators and managers can use SDM® data to monitor service delivery and client outcomes, ensuring that the agency moves in the right direction. SafeMeasures® is an analytic service that helps social service workers, managers, and administrators do their jobs. Our acclaimed SafeMeasures team helps agencies get the most out of their data, motivating staff and creating the possibility of better outcomes for clients. JAIS™ and CAIS™ offer effective strategies for supervision through an evidence-based, gender-specific approach to better outcomes for justice-involved youth and adults. Both systems offer easy interfaces for staff working with offenders, and data reports to help agency administrators target resources efficiently.

NCCD promotes just and equitable social systems for individuals, families, and communities through research, public policy, and practice.

I am working with NCCD as part of a collaborative team to get funding to develop design guidelines and a dedicated center for Restorative Justice. I have found working with both Sujatha Baliga and Nuri Nusrat to be exciting and generative for my work as a designer. I truly feel that one of NCCD's ... more »
