Liebmann, George W.
Social Work, v38 n1 p36-43 Jan 1993
Discusses relation of Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) to problems of unwed motherhood. Shows that extension of AFDC to unwed mothers was unintended development and has been demise of residential homes for unwed mothers. Urges renewed attention be given to public support of maternity homes as means of socializing young mothers and deterring repeated out-of-wedlock births. (Author/NB)
