Technical Assistance for Single Parent Homemaker Projects in Kentucky. Annual Report.
Louisville Univ., KY. School of Education.
During fiscal year 1990, the single parent/displaced homemaker project was monitored at the University of Louisville (Kentucky), and assistance was provided to the project directors. The method of inquiry and the results are discussed in this report. Communication with project directors was increased by visits from a technical assistant, newsletter, and telephone calls. To increase networking and improve programs, directors were referred to each other for assistance and their team spirit was used to advantage. Statistics were compiled and reported. Two adult and two teen single parent project director state meetings were held. The statewide statistical report enabled the Director of Equal Vocational Programs to direct resources for the coming year. Most programs used a central place for the main efforts and implemented an outreach campaign in the outlying counties. They reported serving a different kind of single parent during outreach efforts. Statistics showed an increased "regionalization" of adult single parent/displaced homemaker programs. Statistics supported the idea that a side benefit of the teen single parent programs was that teen parents got their diploma and became better parents with healthier babies. (Extensive appendixes include the following: names, addresses, and a contact for single parent/displaced homemaker projects; evaluation of teen single parent professional development: statistics and percentages; statistical report for fiscal year 1989; and intake and outcome forms.)
