A Study of the Problem of Boarding Out Jewish Children and of Pensioning Widowed Mothers

By Armand Wyle, Henry Mauser, Solomon Lowenstein

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), May 1910

This article presents the results of a study using data collection and personal visits to examine the quality of life and care proffered to dependent children in New York, either through boarding out in foster families or through the provision of pensions to their mothers. It argues strongly in favor of family care over institutions but notes the challenges and potential problems in running a foster care system. In the discussion that follows, Conference delegates disagree about whether and when boarding out is preferable to institutional care and consider varying approaches to the problem in smaller cities.
