A Study of Ten Gases Placed on Suspended Payment From the Catholic Home Bureau for Dependent Children in New York, Which Resulted in Replacement
"Foremost among the needs of every child is the need of a home which is able to afford him proper care and maintenance and which assures him a healthful upbringing - a home of which he is an important part. Next to the home and making it possible for the home to function properly, comes the community with its religious, educational and recreational opportunities and its protection against hazards to health and morals”. These words of Ema Lundberg bring out clearly what everyone who is sincerely interested in the welfare of children will not deny. It is important, when discussing the subject of foster homes, to clarify, first of all the understanding that the best place for children to grow up is in their own homes with their own parents. We maintain that children develop best of all spiritually, physically and emotionally, when they receive the love and affection of their own parents. However, due to a great many different circumstances, we are well aware that, "a sound mind in a sound body and home and community life that gives security and promise fulfillment of aspirations and dormant abilities cannot be the heritage of all children". For those children who are unable to remain in their own homes, there has always been some type of care provided away from their parents or relatives.
