Our Approach

CABS’s goal is to strengthen programs that help people, families, and children in need. We collaborate with our partners to uncover barriers, design creative solutions, and evaluate those solutions using rigorous research methods. We build committed partnerships from the earliest stages of identifying challenges all the way to measuring whether solutions are effective.

How Can We Help You?

We want to understand what gets in the way of programs achieving the desired outcomes and effects. Our 100+ partners can attest to our commitment to collaboration.

Behavioral Science and Research

The CABS Approach

The CABS Approach is a problem-solving method that has six steps: Define – Clarify – Diagnose – Design – Develop – Test.
