USA: Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago
Established in 1985, Chapin Hall is an independent policy research center at the University of Chicago that builds knowledge to improve policies and programs for children and youth, families and their communities. Our multidisciplinary research focuses on children and adolescents and devotes special attention to those experiencing significant problems, such as maltreatment, poverty, delinquency, and mental illness.
