From Waiting Rooms to Resource Hubs

From Waiting Rooms to Resource Hubs

SIDL worked with the Department of Probation in New York City and the Mayor’s Office of Operations to design a participatory process which over a period of three months resulted in a report of proposed recommendations for the redesign of probation waiting rooms.

SIDL worked with the Department of Probation in New York City and the Mayor’s Office of Operations, and designed a participatory process which over a period of three months resulted in a report which proposed recommendations for the redesign of probation waiting rooms – processes and design - across New York City. As public places of service in New York City, the DOP “waiting rooms” -- to be redesigned as Resource Hubs -- will become a visible example of changes being made agency-wide to improve the culture of probation and its city-wide infrastructure, policies and processes -- physical and systemic.
