Objective for this week:
Social work policy centers on attending to a client’s needs; however, certain organizational policies and constraints can dictate how such services are delivered.
In a child welfare agency, are all mothers with young children eligible to receive aid? In a job placement agency, would lack of a permanent address disqualify a client from securing a job?
This week, you explore the organizational policies that each agency implements when delivering services to clients to overcome these and similar challenges.
