Statewide summit, research study point to need for more home visiting programs in North Carolina

Nearly 99 percent of North Carolina’s children do not receive services from home visiting (HV) programs, a new study from the Jordan Institute for Families (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Social Work) reveals. 

More than 300 child development professionals across the state are working to change that. This month, they’ll meet in Greensboro (Oct. 22–23) for the 2018 North Carolina Home Visiting Summit, hosted by Smart Start, the Jordan Institute for Families and North Carolina Public Health. They’ll examine the results of the study and explore ways to increase the number of families served by HV programs.


Contribute your ideas to our new strategic plan

As we approach our centennial in 2020, UNC School of Social Work is developing a new strategic plan, which will become a blueprint for our next century.

We want your input as we work through the process of developing our strategic plan. Students, alumni, faculty, staff, community partners -- we want to hear from you.

Please visit the SSW Strategic Plan website to see information related to this process, including a list of task force members and consultants, meeting recaps and slide shows presented to constituent groups.


Helping parents and children after a disaster

young girls look across a flooded yard to their homeMany families in southeastern North Carolina evacuated their homes ahead of Hurricane Florence — and after flooding damaged buildings and roads throughout the region, some families lost their homes completely.

The trauma from such disaster-related experiences can have a lasting effect on families, especially their youngest members. How can social workers and other community service providers help these families to recover emotionally as well as physically?
