This paper discusses how when the idea of welfare reform first took hold a few years ago many states jumped at the chance to implement its practices. It looks at how they hoped that by adopting and implementing welfare reform they could improve the financial situation their current system was in as well as improve the lives of those who were welfare participants. It shows how urban areas faced different challenges than rural areas when it came to welfare reform and how those challenges sometimes caused the participants to fall through the cracks of the system and be lost. In particular, it discusses one major metropolitan area that has implemented welfare reform policies, Philadelphia. It evaluates how the reforms that were implemented since 1997 in Philadelphia outline several mandates that must be followed or the recipient faces the loss not only of their benefits but the eventual loss of their family's benefits as well. It analyzes whether five years on, these reforms have been effective and the effect they have had on the poverty stricken families in the Philadelphia area.
