The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Children in “Newly Poor” Families in the Twin Cities: Coping with the Current Economic Crisis.

Wattenberg, Esther, and Ann Beuch.

There is a poignant history to the experiences of children in newly poor families—a circumstance that is not unique to our own times, having appeared almost a century ago during the Great Depression and as recently as the 1980s with the dislocation of workers that accompanied the restructuring of the U.S. economy. Each of these events has been accompanied by particular responses on the part of communities, religious institutions, and social welfare organizations. This article examines the impact of the current economic crisis on children in newly poor families and responses by the community.
