Human Services Research Institute

Since 1976, we've been helping to craft community-based, person-driven service systems.

We're passionate about supporting leaders and policymakers, and the people they serve, because we share the same goal: to see all people living healthy, fulfilling lives as empowered, respected members of society.

Our team of more than 50 dedicated professionals provides research, support and guidance to clients looking to develop more efficient and responsive service systems. Combining rigorous quantitative research with community-based participatory research, we strive for more-impactful results and more specific roadmaps to improvement.

We work across all sectors and program areas in health and human services, addressing the needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities; people experiencing behavioral health disorders; children, youth and families; seniors and people with physical disabilities; people experiencing housing instability or homelessness; and states and communities looking to promote population health.
