The Extension of the Work Again Project into Five Communities in Southeast Missouri. Final Report.
Branscum, Shelba Y.
This scope-of-work continued the Work Again Project (Development and Implementation of a Center to Place Elders into Working Positions) by extending it into five surrounding communities in Southeastern Missouri. The project's six objectives were (1) to continue the original project by training and placing more older adults, (2) to continue the measurement of influence of working situations on elders' self-concepts, (3) to continue the education of the community to the general needs of elders, (4) to develop and implement Work Again Centers in five surrounding communities, (5) to establish the Centers as locally funded units, and (6) to develop and implement occupational training programs designed for elders. The project served 5,955 clients ranging in age from 55-93 years. (Appendixes include a description of project procedures, staff job descriptions, an organizational flow chart, a selected bibliography, and final budget figures.) (YLB)
