The Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development (GUCCHD) was established over four decades ago to improve the quality of life for all children and youth, especially those with special needs and their families. Located in the nation's capital, and directed by Dr. Phyllis Magrab, GUCCHD provides clinical services to vulnerable children and their families and works at the national, state, and community levels to support the development and implementation of integrated systems of care that incorporate family-centered, culturally competent, community-based principles.
The Center is known worldwide for its interdisciplinary approach to clinical services, community outreach, professional training, technical assistance, research and public policy. The Center addresses key policy issues to improve the physical and mental health of children and families and brings this unique capacity to bear on critical social issues of our time that affect children and their families such as poverty, homelessness, and violence.
