Working with NEN is a wonderful experience since 2000, and have been around far longer than that in several areas, always working the New England area, with families and youths. Now they are working even nationally and globally. This work provides expert research to this community of direct care child, youth and family service providers, but increasingly work as consultants to broader communities, schools, public agencies and foundations.

Thank for you reading and considering NEN

I partnered with New England Network (NEN)several years ago on a large federal grant to provide capacity building services to small organizations service at-risk youth. Their expertise was critical to the success of the grant. They provided facilitators to assist with the start up process and trained numerous organizations in areas to build their capacity from data collection and recording to leading an organization serving youth. We could not have succeeded with the partnership with NEN.

New England Network for Child, Youth and Family Services has been an invaluable resource to our large multi-service agency; HowardCenter. The resources via their newsletters, website and webinars have been utilized extensively by our staff. I have appreciated the ability to utilize NEN as a key consultant in my role as a leader overseeing all of our youth and family services. Most recently, the 2011 NEN authored report; What are We Doing to Girls?The Early Sexualization Phenomenon and How Communities are Responding. is a great example of New England Network's commitment to advance the field of child and youth services through research and training. This report is generating conversation across our community and serves to promote further research and solutions on behalf of girls.
