Recent Trends in Institutional Child Care

By Robert Axel

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

In 1932, the Bureau of Jewish Social Research conducted a study of the volume of work and standards maintained by Jewish child care institutions in the United States and Canada. Areas of interest for the study included the age and period of care of children in institutions, the care of children with behavioral and mental health problems. Conclusions of the study indicated that while institutions have made progress in the development of facilities and standards for the care of children, there are variations among facilities with respect to types of children under care, services rendered, and operating costs in relation to work volume that require future investigation.
