Jill Kinney is executive director of Home, Safe, a private Seattle, Washington nonprofit corporation begun in 1992 to develop and implement innovative approaches to helping families throughout the United States. 



James K. Whittaker is Charles O. Cressey Endowed Professor Emeritus in the School of Social Work, University of Washington. He is a frequent consultant on child care training both in the Seattle area and nationally and is a consultant on research and training to the Child Development and Mental Retardation Center, University of Washington.

Review:

“The Homebuilders program, the subject of this volume, begun in 1974 in Tacoma, Washington, has been successfully replicated in a number of other states. Its name has become synonymous with the intensive family preservation services that have recently and rapidly emerged in the US. These services are designed to aid families with multiple problems who are at risk of separation and of having their children placed in foster care. Edited by and with contributions from nationally known scholars and practitioners, this collection is the most comprehensive work on intensive family preservation services to date. Its ten chapters present and critique the major features of the Homebuilders model approach to aiding families in crisis, from the perspectives of policy, practice, program administration, and research. Implications for educating social workers and others in the mental health and helping professions are integrated throughout, making this volume particularly useful as a sourcebook for educators. Upper-division undergraduates and above.”
