although Lourdes reached a rough period in her life while prostituting she still remained focused about providing for a better life for children as well as herself. She used her strengths to overcome these challenges and did not let her environment change the mindset of why she came to America.

Lourdes should research these agencies first before deciding to use them because of her past experiences with fraudulent agencies.

This is a case of a 26 years old single mother of two children, Aja, who panhandles to supplement her wage.

I love working with children and have an interest in the homeless epidemic, which seems to be especially serious in Pittsburgh. I have decided to volunteer through the Homeless Children’s Education Fund, specifically at the Sojourner House MOMS after school program and the children’s programs. Sojourner House MOMS program provides a safe and independent housing system for homeless, single mothers who are diagnosed with both a drug addiction and a mental health disorder. The program helps mothers to continue their recovery journey and eventually helps them to transition back into the community.
As future social workers, it is imperative to understand our purpose and intentions for working with individuals, families, and groups representing the most vulnerable populations. In order to care, counsel, and treat these clients, we must act in accordance by following a guide of principles designed to help social work professionals conduct business with honesty and integrity (DuBose, 2016). The expectations for upholding specific ethics and values are described in the Code of Ethics by the National Association for Social Workers. The primary standards listed in this document hold all social workers accountable for the professionalism demonstrated in their practice. This extends to professionals working in clinical social work agencies as
I currently participate with my church in Rialto making meals for the homeless and are distribute every Sunday morning. We usually provide meals for about 250 homeless who are aware of our program and expect a meal every week. I also have free piano lessons at my church for children who attend the church and for those who do not.

After, I graduate I want to provide health care to areas of low resources for people who cannot afford expensive health care benefits.

Inpatient Observation I was blessed with the opportunity to do an internship at the Kansas Rehabilitation Hospital in Topeka Kansas.

While at the facility I was able to perform many duties and take on responsibilities such as observing, cleaning, assisting in transfers and bringing the patient to and from their room, and exercising the patient with supervision.
