Problems Involved in An Open Door Admission Policy in Children's Agencies

By Maurice Bernstein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, December 1932

After a review of the services provided by large congregant institutions, it seems as though certain problems cannot be treated in organizations caring for so-called normal dependent children. The New York Hebrew Orphan Asylum seems to have had difficulty in treating seriously mentally defective children and in helping children with serious behavior problems to the extent that these problems become non-existent. Though the set-up of large congregant institutions seems to make dealing with such children almost an inevitable failure, criteria has not been established for determining the degree of probability of success or failure.
