The Center for Social Services Research, established in 1994, conducts research, policy analysis and program planning, and evaluation directed toward improving the public social services. Housed in the School of Social Welfare at the University of California at Berkeley, the Center responds to the concerns of community. Collaborating with public social service officials, elected policy-makers, community professionals, and consumers of service, it engages in research activities that are directly and immediately practice- and policy-relevant.

At the present time, CSSR consists of the following six separate research and training units -- the Center for Comparative Family Welfare and Poverty Research, the Child Welfare Research Center, the Center for the Advanced Study of Aging Services, the Health Research Group, the Bay Area Social Services Consortium, and the Center for Mental Health Services Research. In addition, CSSR houses the California Performance Indicators Project / CWS/CMS Reports). CSSR also supports other faculty sponsored research projects.
