Center for Children, Families and Communities


The goal of the CCFC is to improve the wellbeing of children and families, with a special focus on reducing health disparities.  The CCFC accomplishes this goal primarily through three types of activities: 

  • Innovative research supported by external funding
  • Out-of-classroom education for graduate and undergraduate students
  • State-of-the-science mental health interventions for Michigan families

These activities target priority areas identified by communities and community organizations that work in partnership with the CCFC. Click here to view the CCFC brochure (PDF).
