This project provides school authorities with the stimulus and funds to take leadership, on behalf of children living in circumstances of poverty, in utilizing the participation of parents and bringing about coordination between the school and community agencies providing services to meet the physical and mental health, and nutritional and educational needs of such children. The objective of the program is to increase the physical and mental health, and nutrition and education of children living in circumstances of poverty by effecting cooperation and coordination between parents, school, and service providers and a project staff. The services to be coordinated with the school program are primarily those of federally funded programs--the Lincoln Community Health Center, the county Community Mental Health Center, the county Departments of Public Health and Social Services, the ESEA Title I program in the schools, the National School Lunch, Breakfast, Special Milk, and Special Food and Nutrition Service of the U. S. Department of Agriculture administered locally under the school food service department of the city schools, Title XIX Medicaid Program, and Operation Breakthrough (the local O.E.O. Program). Other services provided by local and state agencies and organizations in consultation with other services from universities will also be coordinated with the school program. (Author/JM)
