Helping Low-Income Homemakers, Programs and Evaluations; A Selected, Annotated Bibliography.
This annotated bibliography contains 208 entries on educational and other kinds of assistance to low income homemakers. Section 1 contains theoretical analyses of intervention strategies. These strategies are then illustrated by accounts of programs in home management instruction, homemakers' services, special programs for "chronic" poor housekeepers, housing and urban renewal, consumer education, and parent education regarding preschool and school age children. Subsequent sections are on the role of social service agencies, multiservice programs, and community development; literacy education, manpower development, and general aspects of adult education; the training and use of indigenous nonprofessionals; descriptive and evaluative research on poverty; and urban extension through universities, the Ford Foundation, and Urban Four-H. Periodicals, conference reports, and special journal issues are reviewed in the last section. (ly)
