The political left and right -- both Hillary Clinton and Newt Gingrich -- suggest that private philanthropy can help replace the federal funding cut by recent welfare reform legislation. For two and one-half years, New Times followed one such instance of voluntarism. The result is an in-depth chronicle of Esther Gould's attempts to rescue one at-risk child in Phoenix. The boy was helped -- but two families were very nearly destroyed by the well-meaning efforts of this well-to-do professional. (December 26, 1996)
