Solving Problems Together
The national Children’s Home Society of America (CHSA) network’s mission is to create solutions to problems that disrupt stability and limit potential for children, families and communities. We do that by influencing practices, policies, pathways and systems. The Wicked Problems Institute is offered annually in partnership with the Jordan Institute for Families at the University of North Carolina’s School of Social Work to provide the place, space and time to explore the most complex problems that stand in the way of child, family and community well-being, generate solutions and activate next steps.
The theme for this 11th annual Institute in 2023 is: Prevention in Action: Building Equitable Pathways to Child and Family Well-Being. The hosts and planning committee have designed the container to build shared understanding of systemic factors that can overload families, such as generational trauma, poverty and structural inequities and gaps caused by historical and current realities. A generative working session, the Institute will focus on actionable, implementable solutions.
