CAFO Research Affiliates Program


CAFO’s Center on Applied Research for Vulnerable Children and Families exists to bridge the gap between research and practice in the field. Housed under the Research Center, the Research Affiliates Program engages academic researchers who want to see their work make a bigger impact for vulnerable children and families.

Research Affiliates will have opportunities to:

  • Translate their academic findings into simple guidance for dissemination among practitioners
  • Present and teach at the annual CAFO Summit and Research Symposium
  • Access connection, guidance and opportunities to present at practitioner conferences on issues of high significance in the field
  • Connect with practitioners who can provide additional data sources for future study of effective tools and interventions to improve outcomes for vulnerable children and families
