Welcome from the Director

Welcome and thank you for visiting the Institute for Child Development and Family Relations. Our programs are carefully developed to optimize healthy families and healthy development for children, youth, and across the lifespan. Our team is made up of numerous CSUSB faculty, students, and staff dedicated to our mission, and we are grateful to our many community partners who support our work and make what we do possible. I invite you to explore our website and learn more about our programs and people. Our goal is to be a valued resource for agencies and families in the inland region and beyond, and I welcome a note or a call from you if you would like to discuss opportunities for partnership. Thanks, and be well.
