Group
Conditions of or problems facing the group in need
Unmet needs
Description of organizations or programs meeting the needs
How the organization or program meets the needs
Children in need
Children can be endangered because they need adults to care for them. They can experience problems with education, poverty, homelessness, and poor care from parents or guardians.

 

Children need love, care, protection, and guidance from adults. Children can face mental health issues due to environmental problems, or they might have problems related to a mental disability. The needs of children may vary based on specific conditions.

 

 
Children need physical care and protection from older, abusive children or adults. Children also need food, clothing, and shelter to feel safe.

 

Children are vulnerable and need physical, mental, and emotional protection. When a family is poor or homeless, the family may have trouble meeting his or her needs.

 

 If the child is born with a mental disability, he or she will need assistance meeting his or her needs.
Each state differs. Some states have government organizations, such as a Department of Human Services or a Department of Children’s Services, which may provide resources to children and families. These organizations may help with food, shelter, financial help, and more.

 

Some community mental health organizations provide mental health services to children and families. The state health department provides services from immunizations to general health care. Additional organizations, such as religious organizations, may also assist.
The local department addressing human services may have the resources to provide food, shelter, and mental health care for children. If a child must be placed outside the home, the child may be placed in foster care, sent to school, and, in extreme mental health cases, be sent for treatment.

 

Mental health organizations may provide services, such as therapy and medication, for those with mental illness. For adolescents, care might be provided to help them transition from depending on adults to independent living. 
 
 

BSHS 355 Week 1 Field Experience Agency Profile Analysis
Imagine you are responsible for connecting people to agencies. In this role, you must be knowledgeable of what services the agencies offer, who can qualify for assistance, how resources are disseminated, and the availability of resources. Because your program of study requires a field experience element, it is important to start the task early and to know what the experience will incorporate. During your program, there will be two field experiences; this assignment will start the critical-thinking process related to selecting an agency.

Answer the following questions after thoroughly researching an agency of interest. It is suggested that you review two to four agencies―more  if you live in a remote, rural environment, and may have to travel: 

What is the agency's name?
On what days and at what times is the agency open?
What type of assistance does the agency provide?
List the resources this agency has made available for marginalized populations, such as: homeless, literacy, tribal issues, teen issues, mental health, veterans' issues, runaways, and domestic violence.
List the steps required to receive approval for the agency where you are interested in completing your field experience.

A domestic violence program
A domestic violence program provides protection and resources to individuals treated violently by their spouses or partners. These programs can have many components. Shelters are available for individuals needing protection from violence. Additionally, some services provide resources to individuals once they leave the shelter to help them regain independence.
As mentioned, this program may provide protection for individuals, but it may also provide protection for children in the individual’s care. There are generally a large percentage of young children who are in need of protection in addition to the individual seeking help. These programs generally do not provide service for males, as outpatient services are offered for violators of the female population.
In many residential programs, counselors provide advice and counseling. They assist residents living away from their abusers.

 

Victims in the program wishing to move on with their lives, away from the perpetrator, will find advocates available to work with them. These advocates help program participants find work, housing, legal support, and other services in the community. Some shelters can provide some form of legal assistance.
The role of the professional working in a shelter is to help program participants cope with losing their home and community and with the abuse. This is often a traumatic time for the victim.

 

Often, victims come to the shelter with nothing, and they need help putting their lives back together. The role of the professional is to help with emotional recovery, finding work and shelter, and rebuilding their lives.
