Vasquez Associates Ltd., Milwaukee, WI.
The main portion of this study is devoted to the determination of needs for health, education and social welfare services of the Spanish speaking in Chicago, and to draw inferences about the degree to which Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) funds and services in Chicago are reaching this specific minority and the extent to which these funds/services are having an impact upon them. Chicago's fastest growing minority group, and one of its most economically disadvantaged is the Spanish speaking. Specific evaluation objectives included: (1) compiling valid and reliable estimates of the true Spanish speaking population in Chicago; (2) compiling valid and reliable estimates of the extent to which existing HEW supported services in the areas of health, education and social welfare services were reaching the Spanish speaking population; (3) ascertaining the types and relative importance of needs of the Spanish speaking in the areas of health, education and social welfare services; and (4) providing a series of recommendations upon which HEW can base the future programming of target services and funding decisions to most effectively reach the Spanish speaking.
