Cedars Home for Children - An Academic Family Services Model

  • Paula Davey Zeece University of Nebraska, Lincoln


The linkage of traditional child welfare, day care, and academic systems presents a variety of programmatic and theoretical challenges. The University of Nebraska Cedars Home for Chidren Project offers a model for the integration of such systems. The three-year evolution of this model is examined across seven interrelated categories: formulation and refinement of a mission base, knowledge base, value base, definition of problems, client-worker relationships, nature of professional action, and agency arrangements of flexibility.
