Voices of Program Participants

Abstract

The Minnesota Integrated Services Projects (ISP) focus on improving the delivery of employment, health, and social services to families who receive cash assistance and have serious or multiple barriers to employment. Operating in eight sites, the project seeks to improve access to services that address multiple needs and coordinate services provided by multiple service systems. As part of a larger evaluation of ISP, this report presents results from focus groups with ISP participants in four sites. The report discusses the characteristics of focus group participants, how they were referred to ISP, the services they received, and participants' views of the benefits of ISP.
