This site contains links to concise chronological information pertaining to: 1) the history of American social policy issues from the Revolutionary War to the present; and 2) the history of how American social policy has dealt with the unique needs of specific populations-at-risk. Upon clicking a link, a user will find the most influential Acts of Congress, Supreme Court cases, major social events, and establishment of organizations in each area of interest.
