Group Home Management.
Little (Arthur D.), Inc., Washington, DC.
This guide seeks improvement in group home management, especially community-based residential facilities for juvenile offenders. Primary organizational considerations include structure, communication lines and decision making. The role of the Board of Directors is explored from initial selection through definition of the program directors role. Similarly, staff topics range from recruitment through training, supervision and evaluation. Resident management involves admission and intake, treatment and its monitoring, acceptable behavior maintenance, outside services, resident record-keeping and confidentiality. Financial aspects are summarized, from accounting methods to grant money management. Community relations efforts are described, and call for involvement, attitude surveying, volunteer training, publicity and advocacy. Maintenance and operations are delineated, and focus on safety and legal codes, building standards, insurance, housekeeping, and food. Program monitoring and evaluation methods complete the guide.
