Social Services

The Lincy Institute conducts and supports applied research that leads to improvements in many key community well-being indicators. The Social Service Sector supports the mission of The Lincy Institute by forging and strengthening university community collaborations that aim to build the capacity of local social service entities.

Social service capacity building is pursued by initiating and convening partnerships, using Lincy capacity to assist nonprofits in leveraging their existing resources to attract federal funding, brokering data sharing agreements, promoting evidence-based solutions, and advancing programming advocacy. Ultimately the Social Service Sector partners with local service providers to investigate "what will work" as we endeavor to address some of the most pressing community issues.
