This Google page links the mission statements from many different human services organizations.
Then pick three statements and compare them with what your text says is a good mission statement. Finally, you'll need to decide what other purpose the statements have.
Once you have determined some examples from the information Ms. Sue has already given you today, please repost and someone here will be happy to comment on your ideas.
Please be aware that no one here will do your work for you, but we are happy to point you in the right direction and to critique your thinking once you've come up with YOUR IDEAS.
Here's one mission statement.
The mission of Solano County Health and Social Services Department is to promote cost-effective services, which safeguard the physical, emotional, and social well being of the people of Solano County.
The Department seeks to improve services to the community and is committed to:
Working closely with clients, finding out what clients need, and providing quality services and benefits.
Ensuring that all clients are treated with respect.
Making services accessible for clients.
Encouraging Solano County residents to adopt healthier lifestyles.
Check your text materials about what makes a good mission statement. Do you think the above statement is a good mission statement? Why or why not?
Does the above mission statement have another function not mentioned in your text?
Use the link I provided you earlier to find more mission statements.
I've tried that but still did not get it. Would I pick three organizations such as Red Cross and then write a mission statement from there.
Your instructions say to pick three mission statements from human service organizations.
The link I posted has mission statements from many organizations. The example I gave you has a mission statement from one human service organization. You should not write a mission statement for an organization.
Please tell us what your text says is a good mission statement. We can then help you compare the example to the standards set by your text.

If you're in a college class, you must have been provided with information about what makes up a good mission statement.
Please find that information and post it.
