Chaudry, Ajay; And Others
This annotated bibliography describes 53 books, papers, and articles written about efforts toward integrating and improving human services for children, youth, and families living in poverty. The bibliography has been developed for individuals working on and interested in service integration, including policymakers, program administrators, practitioners, academics and researchers, and students. The criteria for selecting materials were that publications be timely, relevant, and currently in print; approach the subject from a broad-based perspective; place a greater emphasis on practice than theory; and be available through a library or for purchase from a publisher or distributor.

The following topics are considered: (1) human services integration; (2) JOBS case management practices; (3) school linked services; (4) balancing custody and care; (5) integration through early intervention/child care collaborations; (6) family support and education; (7) policy maker collaboration; (8) building a community agenda; (9) refinancing and restructuring children's services; (10) strengthening families; (11) at-risk adolescents; (12) welfare reform; (13) confidentiality and collaboration; (14) service integration; (15) investing in family self-sufficiency; (16) interagency partnerships; (17) caring communities; and (18) fighting fragmentation.
