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:

Learning to Sing from the Same Sheet of Music: A Study of Family Preservation Integration Projects for High-Risk, School-Age Children and Their Families in Minnesota.

Wattenberg, Esther, Wendy Baker, Peter Brandenhoff, Elaine Madigan, and Mary Kaye Weller.

The idea of integrating social service programs began emerging in the 1980s. In 1990 the Minnesota legislature funded demonstration projects for integrating programs for high-risk children in the schools. This study surveyed thirty-one integration projects in Minnesota in 1992. All were contacted by phone and seven were chosen for on-site focus group discussions. This report presents an overall view of the problems these projects confronted, case studies of seven strong programs, recommendations, and a prototype of how to set up an integration project for school-age children. The work was also presented in capsule form in a CURA Reporter article in September 1993.
