A Guide to Friendly Visiting, Vol. 1

Excerpt from A Guide to Friendly Visiting, Vol. 1 In dealing with dependent, defective and delinquent families in their homes, no better or more efficient agency has yet been found than a well qualified and organized corps of Friendly Visitors. Charity Organizations, Humane Societies, Juvenile Courts and similar Welfare Organizations, employ paid visitors in their investigations of distress, cruelty, waywardness and unsanitary conditions. Through these official visitors, the public is made aware of a number of the existing evils in the homes of the poor that are a menace to society and in many respects even endanger the welfare of the future generation. Their trained eyes discover conditions either unknown or ignored by the general public that if left unchecked would weaken the social structure and might in a few decades reduce the nation from a high state of efficiency to incompetency, weakness and ultimate ruin. The number of this class of social visitors is of necessity small, on account of the necessity to devote all of their time and energy to social service work. These few visitors are doing pioneer work in surveying the ground, preparing the way, removing obstacles and even erecting guide posts for others that may follow them in the trodden paths. They are forerunners of the Volunteer Friendly Visitors who have more leisure and opportunity to study individual cases of dependency and delinquency for the purpose of eliminating the acting cause in the individual case. Any public relief society that has not for its ultimate object reconstruction of families and individuals and that gives material aid indiscriminately, often fosters the evil it tries to eradicate. With very few exceptions, material relief should be accompanied by a friendly and personal interest in the recipient and we should demonstrate to them that we are in reality brothers and sisters and that because of this relationship we are willing to devote our best efforts to aid them.
