Author Jill Florence Lackey draws on her experience as a consultant for more than fifty social programs and as director of two nonprofit organizations to demonstrate the strong need for accountability mechanisms and more ethics-based leadership when running social service programs. This unique book walks you through the process of how "paper programs" emerge and operate, the monitoring mechanisms that are - and aren't - in place during program operations, and recommendations to increase accountability in the social service delivery system."--Jacket." ;
