Respite Care and Crisis Nursery 1992 Annual Program Survey: For Services Provided during 1991. Data Collection, Analysis and Report.
Huntington, Gail S.; Langmeyer, David B.
This annual survey of respite care and crisis nursery programs funded by the Children's Bureau of the Administration for Children, Youth, and Families of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services contains program information for 43 crisis nursery programs and 65 respite care programs. Data on crisis nurseries and on respite care programs are analyzed in terms of: numbers of persons served, percentages of programs providing services to various family types, types of services provided to children and to parents/caregivers, referral sources, delivery sites, parents' reasons for using the services, problems experienced by children, protective service status of families, substance abuse among families, and fees paid by families. A summary section outlines the need for standardized collection and reporting of data, and compares and contrasts utilization of the two types of programs. A copy of the survey form is provided.
