About The Annie E. Casey Foundation
The Annie E. Casey Foundation (AECF®) is devoted to developing a brighter future for millions of children at risk of poor educational, economic, social, and health outcomes. Its work focuses on strengthening families, building stronger communities, and ensuring access to opportunity because children need all three to succeed. The Foundation advances research and solutions to overcome the barriers to success, help communities demonstrate what works, and influence decision-makers to invest in strategies based on solid evidence. As a private philanthropy based in Baltimore and working across the country, AECF makes grants that help federal agencies, states, counties, cities and neighborhoods create more innovative, cost-effective responses to the issues that negatively affect children: poverty, unnecessary disconnection from family and communities with limited access to opportunity.
About the Opportunity
The purpose of this project is to use national longitudinal data to generate evidence- and data-driven findings to inform current program, practice, and policy decisions and promote racial equity for American families. Researchers will model the longitudinal trajectories of parents/caregivers and their children to understand the pathways through which they change over time across a range of domains.
