We promote youth and family well-being by strengthening systems so children, youth, and families – especially those in tough circumstances – can thrive.
We work within and foster collaboration across systems–mental health/substance abuse, juvenile justice, child welfare, health, and education–strengthening their capacity to use evidence–based strategies.
Using research and data, we plan, transform, and evaluate policies and practices and design new studies to measure impact and generate new knowledge.
We engage stakeholders and consumers, enabling their voices to shape the policies and services that affect them.

Women veterans are two to four times more likely to be homeless than non-veteran women. This fact sheet contains information on the prevalence and impact of trauma in the lives of women veterans, particularly those experiencing homelessness.
Disparities and disproportionalities in human services and behavioral health care—such as lack of access to prevention and treatment services—can threaten child, youth, and family development and well-being, as well as performance in school and on the job. This Blueprint enables communities and states to develop and implement data-driven strategies through a step-by-step process.
Zero-tolerance school policies that remove youth from the classroom are resulting in an increasing number of students failing to complete high school, and in unnecessary involvement in the juvenile justice system. AIR has developed an evidence-based framework to address the issue across educational settings.
