Build the Case for Change

We help client partners build the case for change through research that documents gaps and identifies opportunities for action.

Research is an essential step in designing solutions that address the root causes of inequities. CURE approaches research as not only a process of discovery and truth-telling, but an opportunity for deep listening and relationship building among stakeholders that will be a part of shaping and implementing solutions.


We believe in the catalyzing power of research to serve as a tool for identifying opportunities for change and creating space for underrepresented voices to be heard.

Our research and policy analysis services support program planning, strategy development, public outreach, evaluation, and policy advocacy efforts. We deploy a variety of research methodologies including literature reviews, surveys, focus groups and in-depth interviews, to facilitate problem solving, decision-making and strategic action.
