Foster Mothers Evaluation of the Catholic Home Bureau, New York: A Statistical Study of the Attitudes of Foster Mothers Who Had Five or More Years Experience in the Foster Care Program of Catholic Home Bureau
The success or failure of any child caring agency providing foster home care to dependent children depends in large part to the degree of cooperation and mutual understanding existing between the foster mothers and the agency. The important responsibility of providing the best possible care for children who have been temporarily or permanently separated from their own families is one which the Catholic Home Bureau of New York shares with its foster mothers, under whose direct care these children are placed. Indeed, many agencies regard foster mothers as partners or members of the staff. They have learned that foster mothers will not behave responsibly toward the agency if the agency fails to behave responsibly toward them. It, therefore, becomes imperative that the best of working relationship exist between the two. And just as the agency, through its worker, is continuously evaluating the foster mother as a means of determining areas in need of improvement, so too, the author believes that there must be an opportunity for the foster mother to evaluate the agency with the same purpose in mind.
