About

Housed at UNC-CH, the Family Journeys Co-Lab (FJ Co-Lab) aims to translate interdisciplinary research into programs designed to support children, their families, and the institutions that serve them. Our focus is on preventing harm and promoting well-being across the first three decades of life. Through collaborations (or Co-Labs) with scientists, providers, community partners, and families, we seek to create knowledge, tools, and programs that nurture healing and thriving, particularly in opportunity (formerly termed at-risk) contexts. As a Co-Lab, we highly value different perspectives and diversity in all forms.  We are a community of scholars who value diversity, equity and inclusion in all forms. To learn more about how we embody that commitment, see our code of conduct.
