Social Policy

Acumen, LLC evaluates a wide range of social service programs, providing technical assistance to many of the service providers and performing analyses on the systems in which these programs exist. For example, we have completed research projects on home visitation, foster youth services, and child care assistance. Projects in this area address the provision of human services by both public agencies and private community-based organizations, emphasizing the effective use of analysis and data in program design, service integration and outcomes-based management.
