Final Report on the West Side Children's Services Project.
Child and Family Services, Buffalo, NY.
The Child Crisis Project on Buffalo's West Side was a demonstration opportunity financed for a three-year period by the Office of Child Development. The project was primarily a service delivery system designed to move into emergency situations and solve problems, so that the family could continue to function and provide child care. This report discusses West Side Children's Services from several different vantage points. A discussion of "Project Development" takes the point of view of Child and Family Services Administration, whereas a discussion of "The People Served" takes the point of view of clientele. Case descriptions were pulled from agency files and summarized by the independent research organization attached to this project, the National Study Service. Following this is an "Analysis of Costs and Time" which discusses service from a quantitative perspective. The basis for this discussion lay in the installation of a time/cost device in Child and Family Services. An examination of "Staff Concensus About Services Developed and Techniques Used" was accomplished by a guided discussion with selected staff members of what their experience in the project had been. Finally, a discussion of "Conclusions" was entirely written by the National Study Service, as an "outside" evaluation of the results. (Author/JM)
