Applied Research & Program Evaluation

ARPE Services: Studies of Health and Human Services

ARPE is actively involved in a range of health and human service-related research projects, working on a variety of federal and state funded initiatives. Our multi-lingual staff includes research specialists with expertise relevant to health and human service programs, their managing organizations, their program staff, and the populations they serve. We partner actively with these organizations to ensure that they receive an objective third-party evaluation that is attuned to the unique needs of human service providers, helping to build data collection capacity at the institutional and field levels.

We work with a broad array of providers on topics that include substance abuse treatment and prevention, suicide prevention, trauma and abuse prevention, homelessness and tenancy preservation, maternal and infant health, nutrition, physical health, obesity, chronic disease management, elder affairs, and workforce challenges confronting the human services industry.

Our health and human services team comprises researchers with a passion for their work and a commitment to understanding what works and what doesn’t. With an outstanding portfolio of health and human service projects, our staff has the capacity to design and implement evaluations of a diverse array of programs.
