Community Planning Toward Greater Specialization in Child Placement

By Philip Klein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1948

This piece presents the result of two studies concerning the development of specialized institutional facilities as it relates to child placement. From the study, various kinds of placements were derived including those for children requiring a controlled environment and therapy for behavior problems, usually of an aggressive nature as well as placements for adolescents, particularly those from institutions no longer likely to profit from that form of care, not ready for independent living, and whose homes are not ready to receive them. The piece asserts that the results of the Welfare Department study reinforce the Federation study's offerings on specialized institutional care. The piece concludes by affirming that the Federation study and the Department of Welfare study among other studies seem to tell a substantially united story about the technical agreement on the need for specialized group care for a number of specialized and important groups of children served by casework agencies of our modern communities.
