Jerome, Chris H.; And Others
One of a series of documents on the evaluation of the National Home Start (NHS) program this third year interim report of case studies describes program efforts and successes with 16 Home Start families throughout the nation. A federally funded demonstration program, NHS is aimed at providing home-based services (such as health, education, nutrition, psychological/social services) to families with preschool children. Brief case studies are presented for one family in each of the following areas: (1) Alabama; (2) Alaska; (3) Arizona; (4) Arkansas; (5) California; (6) Kansas; (7) Massachusetts; (8) Nevada; (9) New York; (10) North Carolina; (11) Ohio; (12) Tennessee; (13) Texas (Houston); (14) Texas (Texas Migrant Council); (15) Utah; and (16) West Virginia. Each of the 16 sections presents demographic information about program participants, staff and resources using tabular statistics and graphs. A brief narrative of individual family accomplishments within the program is presented and the program's operational procedures and methods of dealing with problems are examined. (SE)
