Linking Schools & Community Services: Resource Directory.
Mastny, Aleta You, Comp.
This resource directory begins by asserting that a lack of information sharing across interprofessional disciplines presents a barrier to the development of school-community partnerships. It attempts to address this problem by bringing together a body of information and resources that deal with a variety of social issues. All organizations listed in the directory deal with partnerships in some form. Organizations are listed according to different topical areas and, in several instances, organizations have been cross-listed under different categories. A brief summary explains the scope of interests of each organization. Organizations are listed under the topics of adolescent pregnancy and teenage parenting; child abuse, neglect, and sexual abuse; child advocacy; dropout prevention; drug and alcohol abuse; educational resources; family life education and sex education; health care; human immunodeficiency virus and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) education; homelessness; mental health and counseling; youth employment and training; groups that promote partnerships; and others.
