Summary "This volume documents the efforts of the William Penn Foundation and its Child Abuse Prevention Initiative. By chronicling the efforts of this unique initiative and its groundbreaking research, the authors provide many useful lessons for practitioners, funders, policymakers, and researchers. These lessons are particularly useful as child abuse prevention efforts seek to move beyond isolated demonstration efforts and toward a universal system of support for all parents." "Through the lessons learned from the successes and failures of the Foundation, this book has many implications for prevention efforts underway across the country and forms a reservoir of knowledge on how to assess child abuse prevention in urban communities."--Jacket.
