Social services are crises-driven organizations that tend to focus on physical needs like safety, food, shelter, clothing and stabilization. They are driven by reporting and accountability regimes that strive for predictability, consistency and control. As such, their cultures are suffused with demands of compliance and conformance. Staff become stuck in routines; system users have their basic needs met, but not their existential ones. Meraki boxes are do-it-yourself kits that supply content to address existential needs like joy, beauty, love, humour, gratitude, and meaning. It also includes all the permissions for staff and users to try new things and to improvise on suggested content.
