South Central Alaska Project. Final Report.
Craft, Carroll M.; And Others
The Alaska earthquake of March 27, 1964, had devastating effects upon the population and business economy of the entire South Central Alaska region. The project was devised to offer immediate rehabilitation planning and services for the area and to develop new and extended services consistent with the regrowth of the general economic community. Subprojects included the development of: habilitation houses for generic populations; the nucleus of a sheltered workshop in a cafeteria, food service operation; a rehabilitation evaluation team; a special education-rehabilitation joint project; a public offender evaluation and rehabilitation program; and a joint rehabilitation program for psychiatrically disabled persons at the Alaska Psychiatric Institute. Demonstration services were provided to approximately 1,600 clients in the several subprojects during 1964-1969. Research effort was mainly directed at evaluation of needs and assisting in establishing priorities of project effort. Comprehensive evaluation data and followup data were analyzed for selected groups. Many of the subproject services were incorporated into the general agency operations. (Author/NH)
