The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Integrating Services for High Risk School-Age Children and Their Families.

Wattenberg, Esther.

In 1990 the Minnesota legislature designated funding for demonstration projects that would integrate social services for vulnerable children with school services. The projects, called family preservation projects, were based on the idea that in-home services would cost less than out-of-home placement for children and would be better for both the children and their families. This CURA study found that the projects are still highly experimental, each reflecting local conditions. Interagency collaboration can make a big difference, but it is difficult to achieve. See Learning to Sing from the Same Sheet of Music for the full report.
