Preface and Acknowledgments
This book was developed in response to a call for research grant submissions to the National Health Research and Development Program (NHRDP) in 1989. NHRDP asked for researchers to come forward if they were interested in examining the literature on specific strategies for strengthening community health services.

community-based and institutional services;
community-based services and the education, social services, municipal, housing, judicial and the voluntary sectors;
multidisciplinary models of delivery of community services. (pp. 1-2)

It was decided to seek a grant to look at "organizational models for community services" under these terms of reference.

There are a number of different reasons for the delays in publishing the information collected. However, those delays may have been fortuitous in that new stages of organizational development have been reached recently and we have been able to incorporate a discussion of these changes in the final chapters.

The basic literature review was funded by a National Health Research Foundation Grant 5-52047-2522. This paid for research assistance and secretarial help, with $1,000 for overhead which was to include cost of paper, phone calls, etc. There was no allowance for travel.
