The Changing Face of Child Placement Facilities and its Reflection on Practice

By Esther Simon

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1961

Placement of children into foster homes should no longer be a "last resort" option saved for the direst of circumstances nor a treatment focused on the foster child alone. The author highlights the importance of placement agencies working with family agencies to preserve the health of the entire family. As well, she describes the blossoming of options such as day care and partial foster parenthood, indicating the multiplicity of options available to meet the needs of individual families. Dedicated case workers provide service to foster children, foster parents, and birth parents in order to buoy the stability of all involved parties. All of these factors will contribute to the support of healthier children and families in a changing environment of social services.
