REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE CONSULTATION ON SERVICES TO CHILDREN IN THE EAST COAST MIGRANT STREAM, (LAKE BYRD CONFERENCE CENTER, AVON PARK, FLORIDA, FEBRUARY 1-3, 1965).
STOCKBURGER, CASSANDRA
ONE HUNDRED PARTICIPANTS REPRESENTING FOURTEEN EAST COAST STATES WERE INVITED TO A CONFERENCE ON SERVICES TO CHILDREN IN THE EAST COAST MIGRANT STREAM. THE KEYNOTE SPEAKER EXPRESSED CONCERN FOR THE SOUTHERN WORKERS WHO MIGRATE TO THE EASTERN SEABOARD, AND SUGGESTED A COORDINATION OF SERVICES TO PROVIDE EDUCATION, HEALTH, SECURITY, JOBS, SOCIAL STATUS, AND PERSONAL CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT FOR THESE PEOPLE. A PANEL OF MIGRANT WORKERS STATED THAT SPECIFIC IMPROVEMENTS WERE NEEDED IN HOUSING, SALARIES, RECREATIONAL FACILITIES, DAY CARE SERVICES, EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES, AND THE NUMBER OF TEACHERS AND SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE. ANOTHER PANEL, REPRESENTING A CROSS SECTION OF COMMUNITY AND PRIVATE AGENCIES, INDICATED THAT A LACK OF COMMUNICATION AND COMMUNITY SUPPORT IN PROVIDING SERVICES WERE THE MAJOR PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED BY THESE AGENCIES. A THIRD PANEL, REACTING TO THE TWO PREVIOUS PANELS, CONCLUDED THAT BETTER PLANNING OF SERVICES WAS NEEDED. REPORTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS WERE PRESENTED FROM INTEREST AND WORK GROUPS AND THE CONFERENCE CONCLUDED WITH A RECOMMENDATION THAT SEVERAL PROGRAM GUIDES BE SUBMITTED TO THE OEO. (JS)
