Technical Assistance

The Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development (GUCCHD) is a leader in providing technical assistance through partnerships and collaborations with other organizations with complementary expertise.

Across all of our technical assistance efforts, the Center uses an interdisciplinary approach that is focused on cross-sector capacity building to leverage sustainable policy and system’ change at the local, state, national, and international levels.

Our high-quality technical assistance is focused on improving systems, services, and outcomes for children, youth, adults, and their families, including those with developmental disabilities and behavioral health needs: adolescents and youth in transitional life moments, and communities at large.

The Center’s ongoing community and clinical services, workforce development, and research/evaluation initiatives directly inform our technical assistance and provide the opportunity to translate evidence-based and promising practices directly into practice, policy, and service systems changes.
