General Note

  • Accompanying note: "SUPPLEMENTING THE FAMILY INCOME It is almost impossible for a mother with several young children to work away from home. The income of the father is often inadequate even when he can, or will, get regular employment to support the family. One of the most common means of supplementing the family income is for the mother to 'take in washing'. The Urban League's Day Nurseries offers an opportunity for the mother who is compelled to work to leave her children in the care of trained persons during the day. This permits the mother to realize more pay for her labors, and also affords supervision and food for her children. If the mother is financially able she pays a small fee for these services."
