Basic Needs and Social Supports


Food, clothing and shelter are basic needs necessary to survival. Social programs help people to meet these needs, especially during times of personal hardship, by providing financial and employment assistance, material goods, emergency shelter and affordable housing. Additional social supports such as public education, skills training and advocacy help people to build better lives for themselves and their families.
