The Importance of Learning about Vulnerable Individuals
Vulnerable populations include the economically disadvantaged, racial and ethnic minorities, the uninsured, low-income children, people with disabilities, the homeless, and those with other chronic health conditions, including mental illness.
Unfortunately, vulnerable individuals in the United States are taken advantage of daily.
Many people hear this news and have a heart to help, but aren’t able to because they lack the proper resources and knowledge to take action.
This is why becoming educated in child and family services is important. The more trained professionals who can help vulnerable individuals, the better.
