Harvard Family Research Project's goal is to provide quality information and tools related to child and family policies and programs. We conduct, synthesize, and disseminate our own research as well as compile existing knowledge, emerging trends, and promising practices to inform our publications. We also aim to initiate dialogue through our website, publications, and conference presentations to shape and advance the fields we work in.
We have expertise in several interrelated fields, including family, school, and community partnerships; family involvement in their children's education; out-of-school time programming; early childhood care and education; and home visiting as a service delivery mechanism. Our expertise in evaluation allows us to promote evaluation of programs working in these fields. We also support the professional development of those who work directly with children, youth, and families.
Most of our publications are available in print or on our website free of charge and we have email lists you can subscribe to be notified when new publications in your area of interest are released.
