Personnel Practices and Training Programs in Homemaker Service as Practiced in Six Agencies in New York City, 1952-1953
Preservation of the home as a unit has been the guiding force of all social welfare programs. Homemaker service has been inaugurated by family welfare agencies as a means of maintaining the home and family group with as little change as possible during a period of crisis. Thus the fundamental philosophy of homemaker service is belief in the values of home life. The homemaker is a substitute mother, therefore, the selection and preparation of women for the assignment as proxy parent is of paramount importance. Furthermore, if the service is to grow in proportion to the need for it, more must be known about the practices of the various agencies offering the service.
