Nungesser, Lonnie G.; Gallatin, Linda
Conducted for the Palo Alto Adolescent Services (PAASC) and other social service agencies serving the adolescent population in North Santa Clara County, California, this report is designed to assess the adequacy of existing services and resources within these communities. The identified areas of need address the following concerns: housing, education, social relationships, psychological services, and recreational and vocational services. Several programs designed by PAASC are described, including aspects of funding, certification, community and county support, as well as recommendations for future program expansion. Although geographically specific, the materials presented are applicable to other settings with inclusion of needs assessment instruments for adolescents and community members. (Author/HLM)
