The Study of Prospective Foster Homes as a Process

By Edith Bloch

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1946

This paper explores the homestudy process, which is based on the belief that a genuine home study can never be accomplished through a one-sided attempt to evaluate the applicant. It must be done through a mutual, living, moving process, which both the client and worker enter into. Furthemore, both client and worker must accept the results of this process. The structure of the homestudy provides the tools by means of which this process can come into being.
