Comment on the Changing Face of Child Placement and its Reflection on Practice
The perception at the beginning of the 1960s, despite changes in children and family services, is that placement in a foster home is a "last resort" for children in unsolvable situations. Placement agencies, however, recognize more than other sectors in the field of social service that placement in a foster home is no longer helpful in many situations. Rather than turning referred families back to the social services from which they came, placement agencies should take up the mantle of administering to the needs of these families, providing services that one might expect from family services instead. Though money is tight and working with parents as well as children is complicated, placement agencies should consider it a privilege and honor to provide support to families referred to them.
