Yerba Buena: A School-Based Interagency Team Approach. Technical Assistance Bulletin 32.
National School Resource Network, Washington, DC.
Yerba Buena High School in San Jose (California) has implemented a school-based, interagency team approach for delivery of a variety of social services to students, their families, and community members. In the early 1970s the school secured a grant, hired a "crisis counselor," and set up a 24-hour hotline staffed by professionals and volunteers. An extensive counseling program was also developed at the time. Subsequent to the grant period, the school has continued to provide a number of social services under local funding. (Author)
