Our mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable children and youth, single adults, and families by building knowledge and improving the effectiveness and efficiency of public policy and programs designed to help them live their lives to the fullest.
MEF Associates was founded by Mike Fishman and Mary Farrell in 2009. Our staff members are experts in a wide array of social policy areas and have performed work for federal, state, and private clients.
Current projects include work for the Administration for Children and Families, the Department of Labor, the Social Security Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition Service, and the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services. In all of our work, we take pride in our ability to deliver policy relevant solutions based on rigorous research and analysis.
