Support Systems for Rural Families: Rationale, Strategies, and Examples.
Thurston, Linda P.
Human Services in the Rural Environment, v20 n1 p19-26 Sum 1996
Formal and informal support systems are essential to empowering rural families to meet basic needs of health, education, and employment. Formal resources (institutions, agencies, professionals) are often lacking in rural areas and families rely on informal resources (extended family, church, social clubs). Characteristics of informal social support systems are discussed, and public policy recommendations are suggested. Contains 53 references. (SAS)
