ABSTRACT
The author reflects on issues related to social welfare in the U.S. According to the author, many social workers and agency board members have failed to understand the need for national planning and funding of public welfare to make it possible for effective services to reach all people. The author states that the Child Welfare League of America has recognized the need for special effort to inform its member agencies, the public and the Congress about what legislation is needed to secure a good social welfare program.
