How would you specifically help the community view its perceived challenges as a strengthas a social worker both on a macro and micro level? What is the demographic diversity in the community? and how can it be a strength and challenge in addressing the issues that arise?Prof. TirmaziReplyQuoteEmail AuthorMessage UnreadMark as UnreadMessage Not FlaggedSet Flag1 month agoAccess the profile card for user: Roxanne TracyRoxanne Tracy RE: Discussion - Week 5COLLAPSE
Shawn,This community seems to be one that recognized that on a macro level if they keep it together, the community will come together. With limited big business maybe another challenge would be getting more companies to come to the area, then employment rates would go up. Possibly decreasing the drug problem to some extent. My suggestion for addressing this challenge and turning it into a strength would be turning to the tourism board for the state of Wyoming. I would look into what draws tourists to the area. Many great business ideas come from acknowledging that helping people become aware of the many things that the community can offer them in terms of vacationing etc.may help to draw more business to the area.Regards,RoxanneReplyQuoteEmail AuthorMessage UnreadMark as UnreadMessage Not FlaggedSet Flag1 month agoCarol Smith RE: Discussion - Week 5COLLAPSEDemographic Data for the Greater Old Spanish Trail/South Union Neighborhood covered by the 77021-zip code, also included in the area referred to as the Third WardThis area of Houston is predominantly African American at 76.2%. 15.9% of the population is Hispanic, 5.5% is Caucasian, and Asian is 1.6%, with other sub groups coming in at .2%.
