Communicating and Utilizing Poverty Research.
Health and Welfare Council of the National Capital Area, Washington, DC.
This summary report describes CROSS-TELL, a 2-year project to demonstrate ways of communicating and utilizing research findings on the urban poor. These findings, derived from the earlier "Child Rearing Study of Low Income Families in the District of Columbia" (CRS), were disseminated to educators, social workers, and other professionals for whom an understanding of the urban poor is essential. Materials prepared and distributed by the project included a series of booklets based on the CRS material and a project newsletter. Teacher institutes, a 2-day workshop, and cooperative activities with other agencies and poverty-related projects were additional components of CROSS-TELL. To measure the project's effectiveness, questionnaires were distributed to a representative sample of the project audience. Distributed before and after the sample audience had contact with the project, the questionnaires asked the respondents their opinions on selected poverty issues and the extent to which they were reached by CROSS-TELL programs. The results of the questionnaire survey confirmed the project's effectiveness. (LB)
