Season 14: Carving Paths Together for Small Group Homes

Small Group Homes (SGHs) is a social service that aims to provide family-like care to children, until they are able to reunite with their families, or live independently. With children from different backgrounds sharing a new life, how might we exercise design thinking to support their recovery and improve residents’ quality of life? We call out to designers, social workers, psychologists, and wellness experts to share their insights to support the SGH residents and operators.

This season's symposium and co-creation workshops explore how the community can support SGH service providers in providing a caring home for the residents and increase their future-readiness when they leave SGHs.
