Child Care Bodies Move to Cooperate

July 23, 1934
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Four agencies that are dedicated to the task of Jewish child care here are combining in a new plan of child placement, according to a statement from the Jewish Welfare Federation. This will be in connection with the removal of dependent children from their homes to a place where they can receive the proper care.

The plan has already been accepted by the boards of directors of the Welfare Association for Jewish Children, Bellefaire Orphan Home, the Orthodox Jewish Orphan Home, and the Jewish Social Service Bureau.

While each agency will continue with its case work service, their staffs will confer and cooperate with each other.

Part of the plan involves the hiring of new case workers both by the Orthodox Jewish Orphan Home and by Bellefaire. The latter has already employed Sadie R. Spitzer, formerly a member of the staff at the Hebrew Orphan Asylum in New York, of the Jewish Foster Home in Philadelphia, and the Young Women’s Hebrew Association in New York.
