Our Work

Social Policy Institute

Across the lifespan, everyone is safe, educated, healthy and well.

We know that services are most effective when everyone is involved – from the policymakers to front-line staff to the communities they serve. Unfortunately, health and human services agencies are not always informed by key stakeholders’ perspectives.

Collaboration

In order to strengthen engagement and collaboration, we apply human-centered design methods, project planning and systems thinking at both the service delivery and policy-making levels. Our team of Social Service Researchers, Designers, and Strategists work closely with government and nonprofit agencies to identify needs, frame goals, conduct research, prototype new service programs, and plan and support implementation. We are committed to developing desirable, feasible and viable improvements that increase well-being, improve the bottom line, and foster better lives for individuals, families and communities across the State.
