Are you a Black/African American parent?
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
The National African American Child and Family Research Center at Morehouse School of Medicine invites you to participate in a survey and a virtual listening session with other members of your community. The session and survey seek to understand the economic, educational, and health needs and resources of African American families with children. Participants must be African American parents/caregivers aged 18 years or older, residing in one of the selected states. This information will be used to inform programs and policies that impact African American children and families’ well-being.

This project is supported by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) of the United States (U.S.) Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of a financial assistance award (Grant #: 90PH0031-01-00). This project does not reflect the views of HHS/ACF.
After documenting the data from the Community Survey and Listening Sessions, NAACFRC researchers compile all of the data into a report. Participants then meet with the researchers who share their findings and perform a Community Conversation through the survey results using infographics and data maps. During these meetings, researchers check in with the participants to gather their feedback on results that they have gathered.
In the following video, Rodney Washington, PhD, MSW, Co-Investigator of Early Head Start and Head Start Components explains the Listening Session and Community Conversation processes and his vision for NAACFRC research this upcoming year.
