The Community Survey, a Problem-Solving Process in Planning Social Services for Children and Their Families: A Descriptive Study
This study will present the Child Welfare League of America, Inc., survey of social services for children and their families in Montgomery County and the Dayton Area, contracted for by the Community Welfare Council, as a process by which a community identifies its needs or objectives, orders (or ranks) these needs or objectives, finds the resources (internal and/or external) to deal with these needs or objectives, takes action in respect to them, and in so doing extends and develops cooperative and collaborative attitudes and practices in the community. It will postulate a philosophy of Child Welfare as a basis for evaluation of existing programs and community planning and will delineate the survey method of the national standard-setting agency as it was applied to the identification of overall community problems and gaps in services.
