Ford, Elizabeth A., Comp.
The GOAL ONE Project of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) is designed to ensure that children have access to an environment that provides a foundation for school success. GOAL ONE is a national project involving model, community-based, collaborative programs that provide a nurturing environment for children whose families have few resources. This resource directory was compiled as part of the GOAL ONE Project. The programs listed range from small grassroots efforts to broad statewide initiatives. Many of the programs respond to special needs and cultural experiences of families. The bulk of the document consists of profiles of 88 programs in 32 states and the District of Columbia. Each of the profiles includes: (1) the name of the sponsoring agency; (2) the contact person, address, and phone number; (3) an indication of the population served by the program and the program's funding source; and (4) descriptions of the program's operation and effectiveness. Appended materials include an annotated list of resource groups, descriptions of seven federal programs that serve children, and a 15-item bibliography. (BC)
