Do Nothing About Me Without Me

When you make a purchase online, or grab a meal at a new restaurant, it’s likely that you think about writing a review; either positive or negative. Writing and reading reviews online has become a practice pervasive in our everyday lives as consumers. Why not use this model to also assess the efficacy of social welfare programs? GreatNonprofits CEO Perla Ni seeks to address this question in a recent article published in the Stanford Social Innovation Review.

In the article, cowritten by Family Independence Initiative Vice President Mia Birdsong, we recommend that low-income clients should be able to voice their complaints, suggestions and compliments. (Download the full Stanford Social Innovation Review article.)
