JACSW is home to two outstanding research centers. Your gifts to the centers support the infrastructure needed to conduct research and provide programs and services promoting social, racial, and economic justice.
The Center for Social Policy and Research conducts research and evaluation studies, analyzes public policies, disseminates research findings, and tests new program models and service delivery strategies. In addition, it provides assistance to organizational leaders in implementing policy directives. The criminal justice system, human rights, and health equity provide the focus for most Center work.
Improving the health and quality of health-care delivery to Hispanics/Latinos and other underserved populations throughout the Midwest is the Center’s mission. It does this by engaging in quantitative and qualitative health disparities research, training, policy work, and education and mobilization at the grassroots level. The Center’s research agenda focuses on topics in minority health such as diabetes, asthma, and cardiovascular conditions. The Center has become nationally known and engaged in the training of community health workers through its program for diabetes management, Diabetes Empowerment Education Program (DEEP).
