These the Government Provides

These the Government Provides
CSS Description
Attached to the back of the photo: These the Government provides for the penniless out of taxes. But human needs can be pressing even before utter destitution sets in. Human needs include timely help to prevent the final breakdown into dependency. It may be temporary financial assistance, vocational help, convalescent care, nutrition instruction, dental, medical or nursing care to prevent the inroads of disease. The taxpayer's money goes further and is spent to better purpose when Government aid is reinforced by these services which only his private contribution can provide.
