By Gerda G. Sacks, Ruth Case

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1968

This piece looks at foster home recruitment issues in large and small communities in addition to proposing some solutions. The author highlights the importance of financial considerations as motivations for becoming a foster parent. The piece also identifies the importance of the agency's apparent attention to the quality and concern for the foster parents and children. The piece looks specifically at the foster program of the Jewish Social Service in Hartford, Connecticut as one case study for examination. The author proposes some ideas including foster home placement to inter-racial or other hard to place non-Jewish children in the area. The piece concludes by asserting the value of small Jewish agencies as a vital resource in serving children.
