Hornby, Helaine; And Others
Child Welfare, n75 n5 p397-418 Sep-Oct 1996

Concluded that, in formulating their own policies, states must separate a caregiver's need for support (money and services) from a child's need for supervision (casework oversight). Concludes that states must proceed cautiously in altering their policies. (Author)
