This project, commissioned by Pascale Sykes Foundation, examines the impact of social service organization collaboration on child well-being, financial stability of families, and relationships between children and their caregivers. Senator Walter Rand Institute for Public Affairs will examine the ways in which social service delivery organizations participating in collaboratives, mitigate the negative impact of service fragmentation and resource-deprived environments. The project involves the study of collaboration among social service organizations in Atlantic, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem counties. The project employs a variety of qualitative and quantitative research methods, including structured family interviews, network analysis, and focus groups designed to measure the impact of social service collaboration on individual families in select pool of families over five years.
