Dean Bowen's statement to our School of Social Work community about "Silent Sam"

On Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2018, Dean Gary Bowen sent the following statement to all School of Social Work faculty, staff and students, as well as to members of the School's advisory board:

Dear School of Social Work Community,


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.
