Community Assistance Research (CARE)

 

CARe logo
CARE is a Community-Research Partnership that aims to improve the lives of low and middle income populations in the DFW area through evidence-based research. Building interdisciplinary, multi-institution, community-based collaborations is essential to this agenda. Please read our mission statement for more details.  CARE is built upon a model of mentored student involvement with collaborating faculty and staff from diverse disciplines.

Key Projects

Food Insecurity: In order to inform efforts to increase connectivity between the population and health care systems, CARE collaborators are researching the impact of insufficient food access among low-income populations.

Urban Housing Markets: Researchers are examining the relationship between housing markets neighborhood quality and household outcomes.

Neighborhood Peer Effects: CARE researchers are analyzing the effects of both peer-to-peer interactions, shared environment, and socio-demographic characteristics in order to understand how individuals in low-income areas affect each other, and to inform efforts that seek to promote welfare-enhancing behaviors.

Program Evaluation: CARE researchers are involved in a variety of program evaluation studies.
