Case Work Aspects of Homemaker Service

By Hilda D. Armin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1951

The author explains ways in which social work homemaker service transcends the obvious element of simply sending babysitters and domestic workers to help in situations of family crisis. The homemaker service process proceeds just as normal case work does, the author explains, with the worker attempting to ascertain the family's needs and address them. Domestic help is only one facet of the help the agency provides during this process. The author discusses special considerations for Jewish clients, and for Jewish immigrants from Europe.
