Neighborhood-Based Child Care Services for the Inner City. Manpower for the Human Services.
Kassel, Myrna Bordelon
This monograph is the fifth in a series summarizing the work progress of the Human Services Manpower Career Center, a special research and development project funded by the U. S. Department of Labor. This report describes the action taken by a committee of child care workers, educators, welfare mothers, manpower specialists, and concerned lay citizens in: (1) developing a neighborhood-based program model for providing comprehensive child care services to disadvantaged inner city families, and (2) designing a manpower development and staffing plan which would open career opportunities in child care for welfare mothers and other residents of inner city neighborhoods. The recommendations from the committee call for a network of child care mini-centers to be supervised by a central support unit. The program model includes comprehensive school services to school aged children and parents, with full utilization of the resources of other community human services agencies. The document includes a staffing plan, a career development component, and an implementation strategy along with a description of how one community organization adapted the model for its residents. Other monographs are available as VT 016 354 and VT 016 358 in this issue. (SB)
