The Nonprofit Quarterly highlights Youth Villages’ use of research

August 18, 2010

The Nonprofit Quarterly recently cited Youth Villages’ role in reducing the number of Tennessee children in foster care by 34% in less than a decade, and the role research played in those efforts.

A new report says that in Tennessee, the system of care for foster children has been able to reduce the number of children in foster care over the past ten years by a staggering 34 percent. The outcomes are the result of a new approach that was informed by the research driven practice of Youth Villages, a children and families support organization based in Tennessee. Here at NPQ we are a big fan of research that directly challenges and informs the practice of nonprofits, so wanted to bring to you our profile of Youth Villages from our Spring 2006 issue. — Ruth McCambridge, The Nonprofit Quarterly
