Issues facing children and families

Over the years, we’ve developed a passion for children’s issues. We conduct market research about children and families to help plan funding, assist in the development of programs, and measure results to improve the lives of children and families.

SRA has partnered with organizations which develop, fund, and oversee programs for children and families. This experience has provided us with a thorough understanding of the issues service providers face and allows us to use this knowledge to assist these organizations to better serve children and families.
