Orphans, and dependent and neg-
lected children need not be con-
demned to life in an orphanage, for,
the Michigan Children's Institute was
established in 1935 to provide family
home care for such youngsters.
The Institute is located in Ann
Arbor and is a part of the State
Department of Social Welfare. Its
purpose is to take over guardian-
ship and responsibility for or-
phans, dependent and neglected
children, children whose parents
are unable to care for them and a
certain number of behavior prob-
Children come under the care of
the Institute when they are commit-
ted by the Juvenile Department of
the Probate Court. The local police
department may file a petition to
the court to investigate a case. A
county welfare agent then investi-
gates and contacts the parents. If the
case cannot be handled by leaving
the child in his own home, the Pro-
bate Court holds a hearing and the
child may be committed to the Chil-
dren's Institute.
After committment, a represen-
tative of the Institute or another
social agency goes to see the par-
ents. If they can find enough in-
formation about the child, it may
be possible to locate a foster home
for him at once. He might also be
placed in a temporary 'study' home
in order to learn his special prob-
lems and thus place him in a suit-
able permanent home.
A few children live for a short time
at the Institute which is a receiving
'study' home. The majority of these

need help before they can be placed
in foster homes. The Institute also
studies children who have behavior
problems and makes recommenda-
tions to the Court about what should
be done. The children for whom the
Institute is performing this diagnos-
tic service attend the school at the
University Hospital.
In placing children in foster
homes, great care is taken to find a
home where the child will be able
to grow in an atmosphere of emo-
tional stability. The children take
'psychological tests - to insure that
they are not mentally deficient, and
they are placed in homes where the
intelligence of the parents will be
on the same level with that of the
The Institute also selects homes
where the parents will be tolerant
about any bad habits which the chil-
dren may have developed from their
previous environment. So that the.
children may more easily become a
part of the family, they are also
placed in homes where the parents
are of the same racial stock and have
the same eye, hair and skin coloring.
The Institute is divided into three
departments. The Intake Depart-
ment investigates and decides
whether the Institute can take a
child and find a suitable home for
him, the Home Finding Department
locates parents who will be willing
to provide homes, and the Boarding
Home Department supervises the
children while they are in the fos-
ter homes.
The Institute has a psychologist, a.
consulting psychiatrist and a staff of
social workers.
