Bookmark and Share Report Misuse or Glitches

Abstract:

The Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program in El Paso County (Colorado Springs), Colorado, considers itself a child abuse and neglect prevention program, while the child welfare program considers itself an anti-poverty program. These philosophical changes in program orientation were adopted to implement the Department of Human Services' bold new vision of eliminating poverty and family violence.
