This chapter presents a theoretical foundation from which to understand better the importance of nontraditional settings in community life. It begins with a discussion of the following concepts: social embeddedness, urban sanctuaries, free space, and social and natural support systems. Help-seeking patterns, types of services provided by nontraditional settings, the translation of theory into practice, and principles for collaborative practice are then considered. The four general approaches to identifying, assessing, mapping, engaging and collaborating with nontraditional settings; and staffing and organizational factors are discussed.

Keywords:   social work practice, social embeddedness, urban sanctuaries, free space, social support, collaboration
