Consumer and Homemaking Education Instruction for Homeless Families: A Study Guide.
Tsang, Chui L.; Svabek, William H.; Abma, Deanna; Scanlan, Sonia S.
This study guide contains lessons on consumer and homemaking skills for homeless families to aid their transition to more secure and traditional lifestyles. Prioritized and developed based on the needs assessment of homeless families at the Salvation Army Gateway Transitional Housing in San Francisco, the 20 lessons in the guide cover topics such as finding a job, managing stress, maintaining health, parenting, and budgeting. All lessons are planned for 2 to 2.5 hours of class time, and most can be completed separately and in any order. Each lesson includes: (1) objectives; (2) instructional materials (activity worksheets, booklets, video tapes); (3) suggested time and sequence for presenting the lesson; (4) subject matter for background information and discussion; and (5) answers to activities and/or discussions. When used for self-study, this guide leads students through the logical progression of each lesson and all activity work sheets; other instructional materials and answers to activities and/or discussions are included. The guide also includes useful names, phone numbers, and addresses of services available to help with concerns regarding housing, emergency funds, medical attention, and other valuable community resources.
