Criteria for Determining Type of Placement

By Bertel Gordon

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), March 1957

The author discusses foster family day care as an alternative to full-time foster care and to institutional care. Cases in which this may be appropriate, according to the author, include: when the mother is employed or seeking employment, whether because the father is not in the home, or because both parents must work; where the parent-child relationship is such that partial separation is desirable; physical or emotional illness of a parent; and temporarily, while more permanent plans are being determined. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, ed. by Sanford Sherman, v.33, no.3, Spring 1957, p.300-304.
