The Hispanic Female Head-of-Household: Limitations on Access to Social Services. Stage 1 Report. Draft.
Morgan, Lynn Angel
This report details the progress and findings of the first stage of research on Hispanic female heads-of-households and their access to social services. The report begins with a statistical portrait of Hispanic female heads-of-households, particularly those who live in New York City. The discussion follows and reviews the debate over welfare payments. An overview of scholarly literature relative to the delivery and utilization of social services is presented. The report then reviews the study's analysis of relevant social service providers, including large public organizations and community based agencies which serve Hispanic populations. Methods for the next research stage are then described. Organizational and cultural impediments to service use, a list of barriers to access to social services, and a few case studies are presented in the conclusion of the report. (Author/APM)
