INTERORGANIZATIONAL RELATIONSHIPS AMONG NONPROFITS IN THE AFTERMATH OF WELFARE REFORM

M. Reisch and D. Sommerfeld

Social Work, vol.48, 2003, p.307-319

Article reports on one component of a research project in Michigan that explored how the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation act of 1996 transformed interorganisational relationships among private, nonprofit social services agencies. Found smaller agencies and those that focus on clients' emergency needs to be particularly vulnerable. However, private nonprofit providers are critical to the survival of low-income families, particularly TANF recipients, and to the ultimate success of welfare reform.
