New Needs and New Approaches in Foster Care

By Leon H. Richman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, March 1949

Planning and programs of the foster care field today are still being influenced by the superficial emergency provisions which were designed to meet immediate needs in a period of economic depression and war. It is essential to take stock of what is happening, re-evaluate some of the basic concepts which have guided the foster care field, and consider immediate steps to be taken. Professional childcare workers have a responsibility to interpret the needs of children and the standards of help when it comes to foster care.
