Dupre, Peter; Zivetz, Nancie
The Caravan House program, the group home for adolescents sponsored by the Palo Alto Adolescent Services Corporation, is described. Included are suggestions for developing a resource file of appropriate recreational and vocational resources. The materials reviewed cover the following areas: (1) group home residents' needs for employment and recreation; (2) community resources such as employment opportunities, volunteer programs, and community individuals; (3) internal resources such as group workshops, house outings, and weekend excursions; and (4) listings of community services and agencies. Although the document is geographically specific, the materials presented, particularly the resources contained in the appendix, are applicable to other settings. (Author/HLM)
