This week, you learned about how social workers work in IC with housing disadvantaged populations, and read in detail about Cabrini Green. Review these resources again carefully and conduct external research on Cabrini Green and other projects in large urban areas.
Based on what you learned in these resources, determine how an IC could work effectively with the residents who were displaced when Cabrini Green was demolished. For example, members of this population discussed the problems with available, affordable replacement housing for more than 14,000 families. How can you apply the foundations of the social work profession at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels to work with diverse clients to problem solve this issue?
First, write a 2 to 3-page summary of the history and background of the problems at Cabrini Green. Then, create a chart, similar to the one below, where you explain the components of an IC for each of the social work issues to address this problem (lack of housing for displaced residents).
Problem: Lack of affordable, adequate housing for former residents of Cabrini Green
