Environmental Factors, in the Development of Seven Adolescents Formerly Under the Care of New York Foundling Hospital
Under the auspices of the Sisters of Charity, the New York Foundling Hospital, 175 East 68th Street, New York City, has been active in the field of child care since its establishment in 1869. It has only since 1937, however, retained in boarding homes until their eighteenth year, the care of the dependent and neglected children under its charge. Previously, these children and, often, the boarding homes were transferred to the care of the Catholic Home Bureau, when the children reached school age or the children were transferred to institutions. Then, as now, when foster children became eighteen years of age, their supervision passed to the Catholic Guardian Society and the children ceased to be public charges. It is immediately evident that although the New York Foundling Hospital has had many years experience in caring for dependent and neglected children, it has had only thirteen years experience in caring for children in the pre-adolescent and adolescent stages of development.
