Abstract

The Division of Family Services in the State of Utah has undergone an organizational change. State aid to needy families is now administered on a regional level, rather than a county level.

It was hypothesized that this reorganization would have little affect on the client's attitude toward state services. They would be aware of the change but would be neutral in attitude about the change.

Survey research was used to obtain data for this study. A change scale was developed and a score computed. After reviewing the data the hypothesis was rejected. Clients did have a positive view about regionalization or organizational change.
