Guidelines for Establishing Programs and Services for Displaced Homemakers.
Towns, Kathryn; And Others
These guidelines are designed to help public school system vocational educators establish programs and services for displaced homemakers within the framework of vocational technical school and community college programs. The main body of the guide consists of six chapters. Chapter 1 provides an overview of the special needs of displaced homemakers. Needs assessment is examined in chapter 2. Chapter 3 contains a survey of Pennsylvania's displaced homemaker programs. Goal setting, networking, evaluation, and funding are described in chapter 4, which deals with planning. Chapter 5, entitled "Implementation," discusses the following topics: community resource files, counseling, peer support systems, job referral, work study or cooperative programs, special instruction, and public relations. Subjective information, more objective information, and outcomes are areas of program evaluation outlined in chapter 6. Sixteen appendixes (half the document) include community and business surveys, a statewide questionnaire on programs, a survey return summary, state and national displaced homemaker networks, funding sources, displaced homemaker legislation, participant evaluations, vocational interest test references, goal-setting and decision-making references, and an employer participation sheet.
