Institute for Families

Founded in 2007, the Institute for Families (IFF) harnesses the extensive resources of Rutgers University to create a more humane, just, and equitable society. We develop and disseminate knowledge and information throughout New Jersey and beyond that leads to a greater understanding of a range of social issues, and implementation of capacity-building strategies and systems improvements to better address them.

We invite and enjoy strong partnerships and professional collaborations throughout the human service community, including the New Jersey Department of Human Services, the New Jersey Department of Children and Families, the New Jersey Department of Education, and various other community, state, and national organizations, foundations, and professional networks.For more information, visit


The mission of the Institute for Families at the Rutgers School of Social Work is to support and strengthen individuals, families, and communities by increasing the capacity of human service professionals and organizations. They achieve this through a three-pronged approach that mirrors and supports the university's mission of instruction, research, and public service:

  • training, technical assistance, and professional development;
  • applied research and evaluation; and
  • direct service and advocacy.
