This pack of HSM 240 Week 1 CheckPoint Social Problems includes:
Write three separate paragraphs addressing the following:
– Write definitions for the words problem policy and program within the context of human services. Then give a brief example for each definition.
– Make a list of five to seven social problems that you consider most critical for the United States to address. Write one to two sentences describing the extent of each social problem.
– Locate an agency or organization that addresses one of the above social problems. You must use this same agency throughout the course so select one that is interesting to you and that has enough public information online or on site that you may eventually analyze the entire agency and its programs. For example choosing a street-front church that collects and delivers clothing for the poor will probably not have enough information for you to analyze. An established nonprofit or government organization however may have sufficient information on its Web site. Provide an overview of the agency. Include the link if you found it on the Internet.
