Abstract

The following paper is a study of the history of the Salvation Army White Shield Home of Portland, Oregon with emphasis on the years 1940 through 1976. The White Shield Home is a residential program which provides comprehensive services to school-age parents. A complete description of the setting and the services offered is found in Chapter II. “School-age parents” is the current term used to refer to unmarried pregnant women and women with infants in an effort to eliminate the stigma attached to “unwed mother” or “pregnant teenager”.

The purpose of the study is threefold: 1) to familiarize the reader with trends that occurred within the White Shield Home in regard to both agency and client, and allow the reader an appreciation of the various aspects of the Home; 2) to enhance the reader's awareness of the services provided by the Home and how each service came to be, in an effort to suggest the value of the Home to Portland and surrounding areas; and 3) to provide the basis for further study of White Shield Home.
