Families often come to you for referrals for local services. You also lead a weekly Family Game Night where families come to Hull House to play games, enjoy some downtime, and have light refreshments.

What are some of the challenges that may arise in the work of putting this plan together? How might some of these challenges be addressed? What are some of the things that you may enjoy about putting this plan together? Please explain. What are three (3) ways that you, as the lead social worker, can be inclusive in the process of creating this plan?
