This study focuses on the attitudes of twenty five mothers, residing in two housing projects, whose children attended the Operation Headstart Program at the Cambridge Neighborhood House during the summer of 1965. The purpose of this study was to discern the mother's role in her child's response to a program which offers a major solution to the problem of cultural deprivation. The study chose to examine the mother's role because of the importance which the family, and the mother particularly, plays in terms of providing the foundation for the child's emotional, social, and physical development. The housing projects were chosen because they represent another of society's major attempts to deal with the problems of the underprivileged. The group chosen for this study are residents of two housing projects in Cambridge, Massachusetts. These housing projects are located across the street from the Cambridge Neighborhood House. Names of subjects were obtained from the Neighborhood House, and were then contacted by letter. All interviews were conducted on a home visit basis.
