A close colleague, Dave Ray, has posted an interesting article on his website about social work and politics. His observations about the place of policitics in social work is intelligent and germane. The same should be said of religious views.
I received an email today that the "AmeriCorps Keep Austin Housed Program is not being refunded". They will instead initiate a program to help homeless youth seeking "educational attainment". Sigh.
Another meeting with social workers and I just want to scream. The comments that are made about clients make me wonder how they ever survive the "help" provided by some social service providers.
