Directory of Partnership Programs and Councils. [Second Edition.] 1992-93.
Tomalik, Veronica; And Others
This directory contains information for preschool programs, elementary schools, parent organizations, and community agencies on how partnership programs can help young at-risk students. The directory focuses on partnerships that collaborate, using the resources of home, school, and community (HSC) to serve children from birth to 8 years old, and their families. Programs in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas are included. The directory also encourages networking and collaboration among efforts that are using or want to use partnerships to deliver more effective services to at-risk children and their families. Each entry includes the name of the program, address, telephone number, contact person, needs addressed, target audience, staffing, activities and structure, outcomes, and activity most proud of. The first section lists 30 HSC programs, most of which serve preschool children and also offer services to parents. The second section contains 106 two-partner programs, programs that include some combination of home, school, and community areas. A new section includes 11 partnership programs that began after December 1991. A council section that describes eight organizations is also included. (JPT)
