Our newest infographic visually presents the findings of the Tribal HPOG Program Evaluation Final Report, which shows that all five of the Tribal HPOG grantees established programs that led to healthcare training completion and employment.
As part of a project supported by the HHS IDEA LABVisit disclaimer page , OFA tested design thinking’s utility as a creative problem solving approach for social service organizations with three of its grantees. After introducing the grantees to design thinking, the organizations learned the methodology by using it to solve a challenge of their choice. The publication, “Creating Solutions Together: Design Thinking, The Office of Family Assistance and 3 Grantees,” captures the process used and the grantees’ experience and reflections on the project. Not familiar with design thinking? At its heart, design thinking is a human-centered approach to problem-solving. It consists of a set of tools that focus on empathy for the end-user in the creation and consideration of any solution.
