(Format (not basic content) Updates July 28, 2022. I want to reference this post again, so I tweaked some of the introduction to feature the opening phrase and to make the short-links clear for related posts, etc.. My overall theme (this time) is to identify specific universities with specific relevant centers, and at each point, know what type of university (among the available types in the American system) you’re dealing with. I’m looking at Denver University currently.

I went looking for prior posts on the university system and found several, including this one a full six years ago!  

FYI, in July, 2016, I had no stable lease and had been forced into prolonged hotel-living instead (fiduciary abuse).  Since then, I’ve migrated out of state (for related and safety reasons as I enter my senior years) and for both June and July, 2022, I have AGAIN been forced into the hotel/transience situation. Any blogging I get done during this period is “pro bono,” and out of conscience only. I’ve been somewhat active on Twitter (less formal, easier to get some messages out) but publishing a series I started in May has been difficult from this condition.    //LGH)


Do You Know Your Social Science PolicySpeak? Can You Name Some:

University Centers / Key Professionals / BIG Foundation Sponsors / Related Networked Nonprofits

and a Basic Timeline Since at least The Moynihan Report (1965).


If you don’t, this post shows several of the terms, the centers and associated professionals, the foundations (coordinating with each other), at least a few of the associated nonprofits, and where HHS funding fits in.

This 11,700 word post is well worth reading. If you disagree on my connections between the various organizations and personnel, at least become aware of themthey are still influential today, as are the programs they’ve initiated and/or administered.  Call it the “Dewey Decimal System” (at least a labeling system by time, and some of the lingo) for Federal Family Design, the public/private-funded way. Call it what you like — it’s a good start at a historical roadmap.

[Other than adding this post title & link, a habit I adopted later, and this paragraph, I haven’t changed the post from its July 26, 2016 details.  LGH/June 21, 2017] [**Shortlink ending originally mis-labeled “-42P,”  Finally discovering this (3+yrs later, ℅ my Twitter thread referencing it) I corrected it to “-42K.//LGH, Oct. 8, 2019 ]

It’s Show-and-Tell time, we’ll start with the “Ford Foundation’s influence in sponsoring the Strengthening Fragile Families Initiative

THIS POST came from the middle of the following sequence.  It is a large section extracted from “Re-Organizing The World through International Institutes….” after publication.  In case you haven’t noticed, that’s how I work —  I write, I post, I review, I continuing considering and writing on the subject matters, which results in posts extracted from the middle.

The fabled “some day” maybe I’ll get a blog laid out differently so will not need to rely on the “One Main Page, Linear / Serial Installment” features of a blog.   And/or, get this into proper book format, maybe online, and hit the road with it (?? Maybe I’ll even catch up or run across some of the personnel I’ve been blogging who do this for a living — only on the public dole with private supplementation….).

JUST PUBLISHED 7/23/2016:

“Re-Organizing” The World through International Institutes, Strategies, Dialogues, Peacemaking and Programs Targeting Fragile Families, Communities — and Countries... (short-link ends “-41x:) and, Part 2 of it, UNESCO’s IIP Rutgers|”Partners” + ISD and the Strong Cities Network (Reorganizing the World through International Strategic Institutes, cont’d.) (short-link ends  “-41S”

Extracted from the middle of THIS post:  SFFI – CFFPP – JustGive, Inc. – IronPlanet, Inc. – ZOPB – Texas DOTs $1B GrandParkway Project – US Gov’ts Big Banks Bailout|SunTrust (while Fixing Fragile Families?) and to be published simultaneous on 7/26/2016.  The starting point for this one was JustGive.org as a CFFP funder (one of many).

UPCOMING:   “Munich,” and the Strong Cities Network [ISIL/ISIS aren’t the only ones who want to control the World] upcoming) (short-link ends “-42b”)

Also, a shortlink (if you copy the url) to THIS one, Do You Know Your Social Science PolicySpeak? Can You Name Some University Centers|Key Professionals |BIG Foundation Sponsors|Related Networked Nonprofits| and A Basic Timeline Since at least The Moynihan Report? (short-link ends “-42K”)…If there’s any mixup on the shortlinks, go to main blog, Sidebar “Most Recent Posts” or simply to Archives by date.

As this post is basically almost complete, I’m putting it before publication of the third post in the other sequence,  “Munich,”  and the Strong Cities Network although that one’s just about ready to go as well.


Since “FRAGILE FAMILIES” is such a key phrase and policy, let along strengthening them (“Strengthening Fragile Families Initiative”) I start there, for the most part. …. which pretty much brings up the Ford Foundation.  But, it’s hardly operating solo in the overall cause — this is a COORDINATED Public/Private effort, with the end-game completely outsourced and privatized government, and what’s left looking like a legal system, pretty much in name only.

While that’s kind of obvious (if one pays some sustained attention to various centers, or nonprofits), a simple and interesting example below in the funders of a 1995 nonprofit that calls itself “the policymaking arm of the Strengthening Families Initiative“** does tend to crystallize the “many coordinated into one purpose” funding that larger philanthropies do.  They pick causes, and then target midsized (including community) funding by cause, and get public funds involved too.
