Research for Non-Profit and Human Services


marketing researchMarket Street Research has conducted marketing research and evaluation research for non-profit organizations for nearly three decades. We work with government departments, state agencies, federally-funded social welfare programs, charitable foundations, educational institutions, and private, non-profit health and human service organizations located throughout the United States.


Our market research involves many diverse populations, an extremely broad array of topics, and includes people who are hard to reach with traditional research methods. Our approach to marketing research is pragmatic, thoughtful, respectful of the populations studied, and responsive to the needs of both agencies and funders.


Market Street Research is not interested in researching for research’s sake-instead, we focus on helping agencies to best respond to their clients’ needs in order to improve how they design and deliver critically important programs and services.


Market Street Research has helped organizations design new as well as fine-tune existing programs and services, and the topics we have studied range from the relatively mundane to the highly sensitive.
