lluniber Children Heeding Foster Homes
"The" number df children m need
of foster home care Is increasing,"
said Mrs. Taylor, Superintendent of
Public Welfare in , Duplin County, in
discussing the need for boarding
homes for children In this county.
"In spite of the more thah 800
licensed foster boarding homes for
children in North Carolina anid the
two licensed homes In this county;
there Is constant need for addition
al homes," Mrs. Taylor said. !
"There is particular need for fos
ter homes which can offer speciali
zed care for children who are men
tally retarded, physically handicap
ped, or who have emotional, pro
blems. This type of home supple
ments the. resources of the homes
which provide care for , deserted
and neglected children."
The State-wide program which as
sists in providing foster boarding
home care for children is one of
the most valuable programs admin
istered by welfare agencies, -in the
estimate of the State and county
welfare officials. State and county
funds are available to provide the
,cost of this boarding home ) care.
The county department of public
welfare shares responsibility for
the child with the foster parent. A
staff member makes regular visits
to Uie home.
Foster boarding homes are licen
sed under State law by the State
Board of Public Welfare. Under one
plan foster homes provide .care for
children being studied for adoption.
Another plan provides care , for
children who are deprived of. the
privilege of being in their! own
homes for r some sufficient reason
and are in need. ' v
Provision is made in these foster
homes for children who (are ': ne
glected or deserted while plans are
being made for permanent living

children with behavior , problems
are provided good homes so they
can become better adjusted. Chtld
rea wtih physical or mental handi
caps are given the individual at
tention needed. Care Is taken by
the county welfare staff to place
a child in a home suited to his
special needs. A foster home pro
vides board and shelter for the
child and the foster parent Is en
couraged to give him a share in
the love and sense of belonging
which family life contributes.
To be considered for licensing as
a foster boarding home it is neces
sary for the home to be acceptable
with respect to sanatary and health
factors. Fire safety factors i are also
considered in the licensing process.
There must be income already com
ing into the home for the. foster
home program is essentially a ser
vice program and should not bo
thought of as a way of securing
income. The program is consistent
ly stressed as a resource' in safe
guarding the welfare of children.
In Duplin County we have' two
boarding1 homes licensed .for, four
cnuaren each, one of these- pro
vides care for mentally or physical

There are five free foster .homes,

can only be met as homes 'are made
available to give., licensed, foster
home care. We urge interested IndJU
vlduals to contact the cpunty de
