Question description

1.  This week’s material focuses on the historical background of social welfare policy and discusses changes that have occurred throughout its inception.

Please use the information provided in Chapter 3 of your eBook, the internet, and/or the library to discuss how governments influence social policy designed to address poverty. How has governmental influence on policy changed over time? How has it stayed the same? Please choose something different than what has already been discussed by your peers.

2.  This week, you have some research to conduct and report before you engage in the main Discussion. Please complete the following:

Identify the organizations and agencies in your county that are working to reduce poverty.
 ·  Then go to www.census.gov  and find poverty data for both your county and state. Identify the number of people living in poverty, median household income, and children living in poverty. Be sure to provide a comparison between your county rate of poverty and state rate of poverty. Once you have that data, discuss whether you believe the programs and services in your county are meeting poverty needs.
