63rd The AICP Annual report, 1905-1906, section on Fresh Air Work, p. 54. “Next to the overburdened women and the sick babies, the ‘little mothers’ appeal most strongly – those young girls upon whom the entire care and responsibility of a family devolve. Not every one of the is as fortunate as the child of fifteen who earnestly said when she was complimented on the neat appearance of the home: “Oh, but it’s only right for me to keep things clean and nice, for since mama died, three years ago, papa has been awful good. He stays home nights and spends all he makes on us children and the house.

But after 1950, with the expansion of immigration law to permit the arrival of more Jewish immigrants, government social service provision was stronger and the Jewish community was larger and more prepared for new arrivals. “They came to social services that were more developed, social workers who had better training, and also organizations and communities that had a better sense of the distinct needs of this particular immigrant group,” Goldberg said of the second wave.

“War has left a very direct legacy to the poor of New York City – a legacy that is being felt at the present time, ten months after the armistice, more acutely even than it was at the time of the armistice. This legacy is in the form of increases in the cost of the necessities of life, which is causing serious concern to those organizations which are confronted with the necessity of giving assistance to those who by reason of sickness or death are in need. . . .”

Nicholas W., 52. Twenty years ago he lost a leg and for eighteen years worked on a canal boat with a very poor substitute for an artificial leg. His eyesight failed and he could no longer work with safety. Last fall he was sitting in Battery Park one day, with nothing to do and no prospect of anything to do, when someone told him of the Toy Shop. He immediately walked all the way to 50th Street to apply for work. He began work the next morning and has been in the shop since, and, although without experience, he is one of the best painters in the shop. He has no family or friends who can help him.
