Research & Policy

Goal one: Resource directory
Elizabeth A. Ford

This directory outlines 88 collaborative community-based programs serving poor young children and their families. These programs can be models for groups starting or expanding services and for advocates of increased programming for populations with the least resources. The directory emphasizes programs that provide preventive, comprehensive services. This sampling includes inner-city and rural programs, and programs for Native American communities, Appalachia, and the Mississippi Delta, and U.S. colonies near the Mexican border. Each one-page profile includes contact information, the population served, funding sources, and descriptions of the program and its effectiveness.
