Constantly evolving, our work has three main pillars:

  1. Engaging and building partnerships with our community;
  2. Deepening our understanding of the interconnected factors at the individual, family, institutional and systems levels that influence child and family health; and
  3. Co-designing, implementing, and evaluating interventions to support child and family health and well-being with diverse communities

Below are some of the current and prior projects that highlight our ongoing work.
