Question description


We will learn about many social problems during this course. Some problems are very complex and are typically the result of both individual and social issues. As we study these social problems, one question should always come to mind: What can be done about these problems?

The video, Homelessness is a Symptom, helps us understand the complexity of the problem of homelessness, costs of the problem to individuals and society, and the challenges associated with doing something about the problem.

  1. In what ways might homelessness be categorized as a social problem?  Explain your reasoning and support your points with examples from the textbook.
  2. Some of these policies suggested in this video involve government policies and funds. In your opinion, is this an appropriate use of public funds?  How do you define what is appropriate use of public funds, and how does the use of public funds fit inside or outside of appropriate use?
  3. The policies described in this video may be controversial. What concerns do you have about these policies?
  4. Complete a web search focusing on policies intended to reduce or eliminate homelessness. Provide an example of a potentially effective response to the problem of homelessness. Define the elements that make this solution effective.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
