The Center for Parents & Children

The Center for Parents and Children aims to bridge the gap between science and practice in the service of promoting positive outcomes for children and families, with a special emphasis on early childhood.

In the community, our goal is to support family- and child-focused agencies in the implementation of evidence-based practices that empower parents and promote children’s well-being.

For researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, our goal is to support faculty and affiliated researchers in conducting both basic and applied research in the community.

Together we can make a difference in the lives of children and families in
the Pittsburgh region.
