After Care: A Study of Four Adolescents and Their Adjustment to the Community After Long Term Placement at St. Agatha, Nanuet, New York, 1965-1967
Children have a special claim on the Community. As Fink has stated, "Without having applied for admission, they enter a world in which the rules are laid down by others, and in which they have little to say about how they will live during the first years of existence 11,1 Children are dependent on others for the opportunity to grow and to develop into the kinds of adults who will contribute to society. By society, the author is referring to the school, the church, and to the general community at large, The above social institutions all play significant roles in the early formative years of the child's life. If a society neglects its children, it threatens itself. This is evident. Our concern for children is rooted in the realization of the importance of providing decent opportunities for them which will nurture their growth and provide them with every chance to make the most of their physical and mental endowments.
