Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Select Committee on Children, Youth, and Families.
Reporting the second in a series of regional fact-finding committee hearings held across the United States, this document includes testimony from social service organizations and state offices in Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Iowa. Testimony from clients and representatives of these agencies documents efforts to ameliorate problems in the areas of child abuse, sexual assault, hunger, health, foster care and adoption for minority children, education for the handicapped, drug and alcohol abuse, troubled adolescents, teenage sexual activity and pregnancy, women and poverty, unpaid child support, and the development of Native American youth. Both live testimony and prepared statements provide information and statistics on the scope of these problems in these states, the Midwest, and the nation. Comments and questions from committee members explore solutions to problems. Prepared statements and letters from organizations not represented at the hearing include tables of statistics on funding of United Way affiliated services in Minnesota, the 1982 Child Abuse Report for Minnesota, and two chapters from a report on the effects of the 1981-82 budget reductions on Minnesota's human services populations.
