Briggs, William Theodore, Jr.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Northern Illinois University
This dissertation research is positioned within the social problems that can be found in urban, rural, and suburban neighborhoods. Some communities face a host of problems that may be linked to the prevalence of drugs, gang violence, homeless families, robberies, and other social dilemmas. Finding solutions to these types of social problems is a daunting task. This dissertation examines family centers and their contributions to adding stability to neighborhoods. This case study research provides a rich description of how select family centers have battled problems that plague neighborhoods. These centers have brought people together in a safe haven so that they can address community problems. Findings of this study provide contextual evidence of how different types of family centers serve their stakeholders. Suggestions are made for further research that can have implications for both research and practice. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
