1999 HEED Fund Grant Success Stories
|A HEED Fund grant has been able to
provide additional support to divorcing parents in Callaway and Randolph counties.
HEED funds were used to purchase several highly recommended books about divorce and
establish a lending library at Focus On Kids (FOK) class sites in both counties. FOK
is a court-mandated parent education program for divorcing parents. The purpose of
the lending library is to assist families going through the divorce process through the
use of both children's literature and adult self-help books. In addition to starting
the lending library, the grant enabled an evaluation to be conducted in these counties to
determine the extent to which individuals use self-help books during their divorces.
