Social service agencies are classified as public or private based on their policies as well as their means of funding. However in today?s society cooperation/integration between the two types of organizations ids not uncommon. There are many advantages and disadvantages to each classification.
It is my objective to distinguish between the advantages as well as disadvantages of both private and public organizations. I am biased somewhat as I have experienced the problems that go on within the public section of these agencies.
In public agencies the goals of a social worker will often be put the test and often thwarted, despite the best of intentions on the social worker. How can a professional within the social work field promote well being, quality of life, social justice, enhancement or empowerment if the local, state, and federal laws and policies deter him or her Almost all-public agencies are funded by our tax dollars. The legislators that govern the people decide what goes where and to whom. The money is usually allotted to categorized areas, areas that contain a limited population.
Funding should be used to help a broader scope of people not just part or the population.
