This book addresses the challenges and shortfalls of our social welfare systems and how to reshape a giant ecosystem with engrained approaches, habitual reactions and vested interests. The authors suggest going small. They articulate a series of twelve strategies, or “stretches,” that will enable organizations to reach in new directions. Things like attending to beauty, purpose, and identity, and designing roles that activate community capacity and bridge people to it. The aggregate of those efforts across time and contexts, they argue, can lead to a gradual repurposing of the social safety net.
