Excerpt from Dependent Delinquent and Defective Children of Delaware

In response to an invitation extended by you to the Russell Sage Foundation, the writer has made a study of work for children in Delaware, and submits herewith a report based upon it.

It was decided that the scope of the inquiry should be confined to dependent, delinquent, and defective children, cared for mainly in institutions or private foster homes. Organizations not included were those for children in public schools, hospitals, and in their own homes, such as the Settlements, Visiting Nurses Association, Hope Farm, and kindred organizations. The importance of the work done by the latter group can not be over-estimated; their omission was solely for reasons of expediency.

The study, conducted over a period of six months, covered 15 organizations caring wholly for children and four others caring for adults and children. The report contains a somewhat detailed description of their work, a brief historical sketch of the beginning and development of children's work in Delaware, and some suggestions for its future improvement. The inquiry did not include an examination of the causes of dependency and delinquency which brought the children under the care of the organizations; this subject is to be treated, we are informed, in the report of another and separate study of Delaware children now being conducted by the Federal Children's Bureau.
