Deciphering the Conflicting Values Shaping the U.S. Social Safety Net
Webcast examines values shaping the social safety net
The Urban Institute will present an online audioconference, Deciphering the Conflicting Values Shaping the U.S. Social Safety Net on Tuesday, January 5th from noon-1:30pm.
As the recession sends more and more people into the ranks of the impoverished and vulnerable, the public is left to ponder why support is inadequate when hard times hit and why help comes from a patchwork of programs instead of from an integrated system.
Panelists will discuss the often incongruous values, attitudes, and philosophies behind the intricate U.S. safety net and the difficulties in providing effective services to people with complex needs.
