You have recently moved to Riverton, social work degree in hand, and purchased a home in an area known as Alvadora, populated largely by working-class families. After you moved in, you noticed a significant problem: empty liquor & beer bottles strewn all over your yard and your neighbor's yard.

My Goals For This Case

  • Discover

    Become acquainted with the individual organizations and people in this case and learn about the town's dynamics.

  • Identify

    Learn how the larger social environment–culture, social policy, and social forces–affect the town.

  • Develop

    Develop your problem-solving skills through a four-phase interventive process: Engage, Assess, Intervene, and Evaluate.
