Family Relationships in Foster Home Placement

By Mary Polk

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1950

The author argues that the agency which accepts a child for foster care services implicitly takes on a responsibility not only to care for the child, but to become involved in addressing the needs of the parents which contributed to the situation requiring foster care in the first place. She examines a case example in order to illustrate the relationship of the agency to both parent and child.
