Richland County Welfare Coordination Project. Final Report.
MARK Private Industry Council, Mansfield, OH.
The Richland County (Ohio) Welfare Coordination Project had three main goals: (1) to examine the roles, functions, and allowable service activities of each of four agencies involved in adult education, training, and job placement efforts; (2) to develop a systematic approach to the selection of service providers for clients; and (3) to develop resources within the existing social service community to fill any gaps in services identified. Staff from the participating agencies worked toward the development of activities recommended by work groups of the agencies in the areas of education and training, support services, services to youth, job development and placement, service eligibility, and resource management. Recommendations included improved coordination, tracking of client progress, provision of child care and transportation resources, involvement of business, simplification of assessment and intake procedures, evaluation of quality as well as quantity of services, increasing hours and accessibility of services, and provision of counseling. (Appendixes to the report include a list of recommendations and the system collaboration committee documents and list of names.) (KC)
