This program offered education, nutrition,
health and safety, and human service resources to low-income, primarily African-American families
(n=108) from 1969-1975. Services included weekly home visits, high-quality child care (one-half day five
days per week for children 6 to15 months of age, and full-day care five days per week for children 15 to
60 months of age); and weekly parent group meetings. Services began prenatally and continued until
children reached elementary school age. At follow-up, when children were 13-16 years old, 6 percent
of the intervention group versus 22 percent of the matched comparison group children had been
processed as probation cases (juvenile delinquency) by the County Probation Department, and the
cases for the youth in the comparison group were much more severe and chronic.47
