Summary

Marin City is an isolated African American community located in mostly affluent Marin County, California. Thirty-six percent of households in Marin City fall below the poverty line. This report provides three case studies from the Marin City Families First (MCFF) program, an intervention that aims to develop a model comprehensive child and family support system for low-income communities. The case studies show the difficulties and desires of actual clients and their experiences from the perspectives of the Family Advocates (home-based case managers), the program's case supervisor, and the families themselves. These clients often experienced numerous ongoing crises, and, in these cases, the intervention began while the mother was in treatment for drug addiction. A theme of family support for the program is the acquisition of resources to meet basic survival needs. Other themes are providing supportive counseling and developing the parenting caregiver's empathy and understanding of child development. One of the strongest themes to emerge in these studies is the important role of the Case Supervisor. The case studies tell the stories of: (1) a couple raising the husband's grandchildren; (2) a single mother of two children; and (3) a family with three children and one stepchild. (SLD)
