Social Policy Decision PaperAdriane McClendonBSHS/355 - DELIVERY OF HUMAN SERVICES: THEORY AND PRACTICEApril 25, 2016Teresa Levesque
Social Policy has become an enormous influence on peoples’ everyday way of life. As the human services filed and the desires of today’s families intensify quickly we are inclined to forget how a disastrous moment in life can alter the way things are looked at. I am strongly for MADD “Mothers against Drunk Driving” and the influence that it has made on social policies and the human services filed. MADD Mission Statement: “to end drunk driving help fight drugged driving support the victims if these violent crimes and prevent underage drinking”. The founder Candice Lightner formed MADD May 7, 1980. She created this organization after a driver drunkenly hit and ran killing her 13-year-old daughter, Cari. Candice connected with other mothers who sought to help with taking a stand in opposition to issues producing the catastrophes connected with alcohol, drunk driving and drugged victims. Her older daughter, while on a school field trip, was killed due to a drunk-driving incident. Her daughters’ killer was in jail two days before the incident due to a repeated offense.
