Compile a list of the human service agencies in your city or state. Choose two agencies from your list. Research and study the available information for each agency, obtained from the agency’s Web site or other credible Internet sources. Search for information about how the agency determines needs and the demographic it serves. Refer to Appendix C for tips on where to find this information and Appendix G for other suggested Web sites.
Compare and contrast the information you found for each agency, then answer the following questions in 200 to 300 words: •What needs do each agency meet and what demographic does each agency serve? What or who may have influenced the agency’s decision to meet the needs of this demographic group? •What differences have you observed between the ways the two agencies attempt to meet human needs? •How successful is each agency in meeting the needs of its demographic group? What challenges may be preventing the agencies from meeting certain needs?
Well the two agencies that I looked up where food stamps (FI) and Medicaid. They are just about the same but they only go if you need them. If you have a low income family then you can get them both. But you have to make it on the charts. They go by the amount of money that you make and how many kids you have too. But you don’t have to have kids to get food stamps or Medicaid. These groups meet the needs of all the people but Medicaid only goes to the people that are older or have kids that are under the age 18 years old.
The way I have found that they have made for the people is that they give people food in there house or they make sure that they have the health care that they need to live longer or even just get checked out for a cold. I think that the biggest challenges that they face is trying to find out who really needs it and who don’t need it. They have to look at each case very well and make sure that they don’t have any way to cheat the system any way. I believe that both of these thing make the government better and help use become a better united states all the way around.
