Improving people’s lives is often bigger than any one provider’s capacity or a single government agency’s charter. It requires the ability to reach across boundaries to leverage all available resources. ICF has a long history of building bridges to align programs across organizations.
In the United States (U.S.), for example, we have helped achieve meaningful impact in social programs ranging from human trafficking to job training programs to child welfare.
With backgrounds ranging from public policy, human services, social sciences, technology, and finance to urban planning, public health, and environmental science, ICFers have unique skills that enable us to drive breakthrough work on many of the world’s most critical social issues.
Across Europe, we help policymakers and practitioners to develop approaches which are based on good practice elsewhere, for example:
ICF assists social service providers with solutions, training, and tools needed to develop and implement successful programs to support children, youth, and families.
ICF manages dynamic, easy-to-use clearinghouses and resource centers to help organizations, foundations, social service providers, and the public educate themselves and help vulnerable populations.
ICF works with commercial developers, lenders, local and federal governments, nonprofit organizations, and tribal communities on economic and infrastructure development issues focused on creating jobs and fostering business development.
ICF supports service providers in creating sustainable economic development that brings together organizations and low-income workers to address employment needs into the future.
ICF supports providers that offer assistance to victims of crime and violence and survivors of disasters in areas such as health, counseling, legal processes, community rebuilding, and funding.
