Kathryn (Callie) Kaplan

Kathryn (Callie) serves as a Senior Research Associate, leading research and evaluation projects related to poverty, human rights, and social justice. Many of the projects she leads have a direct health focus, including motivational interviewing and HIV-related outcomes, the social return on investment of maternal and child health services among young moms experiencing homelessness, and an evaluation of an innovative place-based behavioral health and care coordination program. Callie's public health expertise significantly shapes her approach and implementation of research and evaluation projects.

Heartland Alliance is a leading anti-poverty organization, working in communities locally and internationally to serve those who are experiencing homelessness, living in poverty, or seeking safety. They provide a comprehensive array of services in the areas of health, housing, jobs, and justice and lead state and national policy efforts, which target lasting systems change. Heartland Alliance’s mission is to advance human rights and respond to the human needs of endangered populations—particularly the poor, the isolated, and the displaced—through the provision of comprehensive and respectful services and the promotion of permanent solutions leading to a more just global society.
