For your final project, you are required to discuss similarities and differences between the history of the agency you chose and the history of the human services field. For this assignment, consider what you have learned in Chapter 2 of your text. Review the historical timeline website provided for you in the resources for this module. These timelines provide you with an example of what our class timeline will look like when it is completed.
Then, access the Human Services Timeline Wiki below and add an entry that notes the founding year for the organization you chose for the final project, including a few sentences explaining who established it, why is was established, and the mission of the organization. Be sure to include your name with each posting. Your first entry should follow this format:
Name of organization that was founded on this date
A few sentences explaining who established it, why it was established, and the mission of the organization
Then, add a second entry that describes one event in human services history (at the state, national, or international level). This historical event can be from the past or present. The event could be related to a new law or policy (e.g., the Affordable Care Act) or changes in the community your agency serves (e.g., change in the rate of illegal drug use, teen pregnancy, unemployment). Include the date the event occurred, and add a few short sentences summarizing the event and its impact on the field. Your second entry should follow this format:
A few sentences summarizing the event and its impact on the field
Example postings for each entry are included below. Be careful to organize your entries in chronological order (oldest date at the top of the wiki, most recent date at the bottom). This will be a comprehensive list, so post early. No more than three students can post on the same event. If you are posting on a previously mentioned event, be sure to offer additional insights about the challenges or reactions to the event that build on your peers’ posts.
