And that's a wrap, 2018!
As we reflect on the past year and gear up for 2019, we wish you well and are excited to share a few of our big headlines from the year in review:
New Staff and Promotions
MEF welcomed Adelaide Currin as a Research Assistant in our Seattle office earlier this year, and we’re excited to bring aboard Kate Stepleton as a Senior Research Associate this month. Kate brings substantial expertise in child and family research and policy, with over 11 years of experience in the nonprofit sector, federal government, and academia. In addition to new hires, we've promoted some of our finest; Carly Morrison is now a Research Associate, and Riley Webster is now a Research Analyst.

Addressing Emergent Policy Questions
From understanding the needs of independent contractors in Washington State to assessing the implications of child care reauthorization, MEF is busy informing real-time policymaking in 2019.
Providing technical assistance to local human services agencies
We are excited to continue working directly with states, counties, and tribes to build their capacity through dynamic technical assistance.
Scanning the State of the Field to Identify Promising Practices
We continue to draw on our experience with an array of human services domains to describe and distill innovative practices.
As always, we look forward to growing our capacity, partnerships, and exceptional staff in the year ahead while continuing our work with you. We'll be in touch and hope you will too!

Best Wishes,
MEF Associates
