Project

Designing healing-centered technology to support foster youth

Groups

In this project, we are exploring ways to design technology that promotes healing and care for young people who have experienced foster care in Massachusetts.

Our methodologies draw on design justice, trauma-informed design, and human-centered design frameworks - centering the perspectives and experiences of young people who have been in foster care, prioritizing reciprocity and safety, and following an iterative prototyping process.

We are excited to be doing this work in collaboration with Friends of the Children Boston and JRI Foster Care Program

This project is generously funded by The Shah Family Foundation and MIT's Priscilla King Gray Public Service Center

Stay tuned for updates as the project progresses!
