Services to Multi-Problem Youth. Georgia Department of Human Resources Program and Funding Report, Vol. 2, No. 1, January 15, 1976.
Schiffman, Jan; Washington, Blanche
This report focuses on a problem area which is being addressed by a consortium of agencies, and is designed to enrich the options of planners and program personnel in terms of both innovative concepts and potential resources required for program support. This report relates to the target population of "multi-problem" youth for whom no existing service category seems to fit. Such youth are neither seriously emotionally disturbed nor criminal and, thus, are in need of some type of service or intervention which provides the least amount of restriction. The body of this report is an analysis of four programs which exemplify multi-agency and multiple funding approaches for dealing with the problems of youth. These four programs were selected on the basis of their success in maximizing available resources in an integrated delivery system. The descriptive analyses of these programs present aspects of the programs that are considered to be primary elements of program and resource development. (SJL)
