This report describes Home Start, a sequential, highly individualized enrichment program for disadvantaged 2- to 5-year-olds. The program, based on the theoretical need hierarchy of Maslow, focuses on community and family dynamics. Home Start encouraged interdisciplinary collaboration, using the services of psychologists, social workers, home economists, nurses, speech therapists, preschool teachers, and paraprofessionals. This report (1) discusses the parental involvement in Home Start, (2) describes how vulnerable families were identified and referred to community agencies, and (3) presents longitudinal data 19 months after the program's termination.
