Family Welfare - Housekeeper Service in A Children's Program

By Joseph E. Beck

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, September 1935

The author discusses a Visiting Housekeeper program operated by certain family and children's social work agencies, in which a domestic worker visits homes and teaches families home economics skills such as preparing meals on a budget and maintaining hygienic homes. This type of program can alleviate the need for certain kinds of child placement cases, he explains, such as cases in which poverty and poor home economics skills on parents' part can lead to situations which would otherwise end in foster care or institutional placement. Keeping children in their own homes is preferable, notes the author.
