Family centers were used to coordinate the delivery of services in the Child and Family Reosurce Program (CFRP) in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, one of 11 demonstration sites in this Head Start-affiliated program. Cooperation between county service agencies was fostered by implementation of a task force whose members were executive directors of the service agencies. Specific areas of the program are described and evaluated: (1) the overall, specific, and operational goals of the program and its components; (2) the planning, startup, and implementation of the program components (social and health services, parent and vocational education, infant-toddler development, and parent involvement); (3) major staff functions, qualifications, and interrelationships; (4) preservice and inservice training programs; (5) recruitment of families and the use of needs assessment procedures; (6) amount and quality of social service agency delivery coordination; (7) materials used with each component; and (8) program cost data (in table form). A general summary of this site's strengths and weaknesses is provided. (ED)
