Operated out of Washington, D.C., the Center for the Study of Social Policy is a nonprofit, nonpartisan research organization that promotes public policies and practices that improve the lives of children and their families. The center’s website provides policymakers with examples of successful policies, explanations of the importance of certain policies and directions for how to tailor a policy so it will work in a particular state.

Topics such as “Strategies for Tight Budget Times,” “Improving Early School Success and Grade-Level Reading” and “Reducing Juvenile Detention,” are featured on the site. The site also makes note of key data indicators for states to use when measuring their progress and includes success stories from jurisdictions that have employed strategies and suggestions from the website. Policymakers can also find tools such as checklists and self-assessments on the site. In addition, posts videos and blog entries related to children’s policies.
