This final report describes a project developed to service inner-city neighborhood families in crisis by establishing a central referral services where families could go for help. A second goal is the provision of 24 hours a day, seven days a week care for children in a neighborhood based facility --which also provides other emergency forms of assistance, as required. Four sections focus on the geographical area, population of area, methodology, and a services summary describing areas such as shelter, clothing, medical, and fuel -- how they were used, and their advantages and disadvantages. Two additional summaries, providing statistical and financial data and fourteen tables, are also included. Through the coordination efforts of neighborhood agencies, organizations, and individuals, the project is said to have established and maintained neighborhood services and care for families and children effectively -- in addition to extensive record keeping for families served, and follow-up services and supplementary services such as employment, referrals, and baby-sitting.
