Homeless Families with Children: Programmatic Responses of Five Communities. Volume II: Site Visit Reports and Program Profiles.
Macro Systems, Inc., Silver Spring, MD.
An exploratory study was conducted to examine the ways in which existing programs or service delivery systems have adapted to meet the needs of homeless families with children. Key issues and model and innovative approaches were identified prior to study site visits in five cities: (1) Atlanta (Georgia); (2) Baltimore (Maryland); (3) Boston (Massachusetts); (4) Minneapolis (Minnesota); and (5) Oakland (California). This volume includes the site visit reports for each of the five cities and the profiles of programs visited in each city. In Atlanta, study personnel interviewed representatives of state and local government agencies, advocacy groups, and service providers, and toured facilities, where possible, for 10 shelters, clinics, and programs. Program profiles are presented, with an overview of the city's efforts, for six Baltimore programs. The site visit in Boston reviewed the efforts of eight programs. In Minneapolis, eight programs or shelters were studied. The site visits in Oakland investigated the services of seven programs. An appendix contains a glossary of related terms. Ten exhibits list the site visit participants and describe the service delivery flow in the site visit cities. (SLD)
