Moving Toward Family Solutions:

An Immersive Simulation Experience

For vulnerable children and at-risk families, a wide range of family support and care options together contribute to a robust “continuum of care” that can meet the unique needs of each child and maximize opportunities for children to grow up in nurturing families. Organizations that currently provide residential care, such as orphanages and children’s homes, are often well-positioned to reshape their programs to support care for children within families. This full-day workshop offers the opportunity to walk through the steps of this process using a fictional case study and interactive small group discussion.
