Reading Assignment

One of the things that stuck with me most through the entire reading is just how much our current social/welfare programs are reflected in the programs offered by the settlement houses, such as Hull House. The number of programs offered by the Hull House is rather staggering. The programs ranged from day care, to health care, to even poetry classes. The level of care and involvement that the settlement houses offered those in need was immense and impressive. They truly went the extra mile to improve the lives of people in need.

Thank god that our congressional leaders can’t read, we have enough social programs to eat away at tax dollars; government-subsidized poetry classes is the last thing we need.
