Download PDF for this date

A nonsectarian Foster Family Workshop has been established by Yeshiva University’s Wurzweiler School of Social Work to train children’s agency supervisors and provide courses for foster parents on how to care for children in their charge. The workshop, financed by a grant from the U.S. Children’s Bureau, will stress the special problems of foster children caused by their previously unhappy environment.

Participating in the program are the Angel Guardians Home, Catholic Home Bureau, Children’s Aid Society, Sheltering Arms Children’s Service, Nassau County Child Welfare Division, New York City Department of Welfare, Jewish Child Care Association and Windham’s Children Service.
