Assignment: Transparency and Public Trust
Misuse of funds is not the only thing that can cause problems with public trust. It is important for any organization that uses volunteers or takes donations to be transparent and accountable to the public. Organizations can take specific steps to assure that they are transparent and accountable in their actions. It is up to human services administrators to provide transparency and accountability for their organizations.
