Summary

This report documents the develoment of a two-pronged, model approach to early intervention with families in low-income communities. Since 1988, the Far West Laboratory's Center for Child and Family Studies and agencies in two low-income communities have been collaborating members of the Bay Area Early Intervention Program (BAEIP). BAEIP organizes agency services and develops new ones so as to create a coordinated support system that serves families from pregnancy through the child's eighth year. The program's intervention model consists of two interrelated efforts: the Augmented Family Advocacy System (AFAS) and the Community Services Support System (CSSS). AFAS uses a home-based, case management strategy to deal with program participants, while CSSS works with community institutions, informal networks, and service agencies to facilitate their coordination, collaboration, and support in providing assistance to families. In this report, information from the work done in the two low-income communities involved in BAEIP is used to illustrate the manner in which facilitation activities took place and the needs and issues that those who attempt similar interventions should expect to encounter.
