social Science Associates was founded by Steve Darman in 1998 in Upstate/Central New York. We are a small community-based community research and development agency. We do needs assessment and program evaluation work and have worked closely with local government and community agencies to identify, assess, and address a variety of social problems affecting youth, adults, and families.

While most of our recent work is with homeless populations and programs, SSA has also done extensive work improving veteran reentry and reintegration and prisoner reentry and reintegration systems, and on identifying and implementing creative and effective solutions to address youth violence and youth gang activity.

If you or your organization is interested in a community research or community development project, contact me, Steve Darman. Please call me or email me to set up an appointment.
