Human services programs’ strength is in their ability to meet the evolving needs of the communities they are designed to support, even in times of tumult and uncertainty. Connect with Mathematica at the 2023 National Association for Welfare Research and Statistics (NAWRS) Workshop in Salt Lake City to explore how we can help you consider the evidence and insights that will help to effectively and sustainably design and evaluate human services programs!
Mathematica’s team holds deep expertise in data and analytics. We can support you in using and building evidence to improve programs, inform decision making, and bolster meaningful policy change in areas such as nutrition and employment assistance, child welfare, family support, and more.
On this web page, explore a collection of Mathematica’s work related to topics covered at this year’s workshop—including the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and SNAP Employment & Training (E&T) services, economic mobility, how COVID-19 shifted human services operations, and more.
