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:

Down to the Bone: Community-Based Facilities in a Time of Retrenchment.

Wattenberg, Esther.

How do community-based social service facilities respond to a period of fiscal austerity? A history of the development of community-based facilities is followed by results of a survey of directors of sixty-nine facilities in the Twin Cities metropolitan area in 1982 and two case studies: facilities for troubled adolescents and facilities for the developmentally disabled. The study is summarized in the June 1986 CURA Reporter.
