Poor Children and Welfare Reform


Welfare departments often emphasize efficiency and speed in their relationships with the poor. Such emphases do not favor an understanding of and a coping with families' and children's needs. Golden links two critical policy areas: the way agencies relate to families on welfare and their economic status, and what those agencies can and must do to improve services for needy children. How can welfare programs be better used in the future to reach children at the time of their lives when services can make the most difference? The author's recommendations are practical and operational in nature.
