In the Kentucky Homeplace Project, specially trained paraprofessionals who live in medically underserved rural communities make home visits, facilitate access to health care, and provide case management and culturally appropriate prevention education for poor families. Strengths include local administration and staff and holistic and traditional frameworks for service delivery. Weaknesses include funding issues, client dependency, and minimal evaluation. (SV)
