This chapter discusses the criteria of the Family Welfare Association (FWA) in providing welfare assistance to the poor in Minneapolis. It explains that the most significant welfare work of the FWA did not lie in changing material circumstances but in changing, adjusting, and guiding clients' directions. The most common grounds for rejection of clients tended to focus on a lack of planning and an unwillingness to change, rather than fraud as was the case in FWA counterparts in London and Melbourne.
