The Use of a Subsidized Foster Home

By Hanna Sidransky

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, December 1948

Jewish Social Service Bureau of Pittsburgh established a subsidized foster home as an aid in carrying on the function of its Child Placement Program. The development of the subsidized home became necessary because of the constantly increasing difficulties in finding families willing to care for children on a temporary basis. During the twenty-one months of the functioning of the home, the foster parents have given temporary care to seventeen children including infants for periods from three weeks to nine months. The bureau has found the temporary foster home also valuable in providing care for infants and the agency and community have derived endless benefits from the use of the subsidized home especially with agency no longer finding it necessary to deny or delay placement any child needing it.
