Chipungu, Sandra A.; Everett, Joyce E.
Journal of Multicultural Social Work, v3 n3 p17-33 1994
Uses data from eight-state survey to explore types and amount of information provided by child welfare workers and agencies to two African American foster parent types--extended family and those derived from organizational tradition (strangers). The traditional group requested and received more information on policies, services, and foster parent role; recommends some possibilities for amelioration. (RAH)
