Home service of the American Red Cross
Text from page 77: "The conclusion of the report of the committee, "it is the duty of the Red Cross to foster and conserve such social awakening as the Red Cross has brought about and to help local communities to find ways in which they can express well their desire for social advancement", is, in effect, a summary of the aim of the peace program of Home Service. The Red Cross through its Home Service has already made the greatest contribution to social service in America which any one agency has ever made; the adoption of this peace program will mean that a large part of that contribution will be made permanent. Through the awakening of the social conscience and the social enlightenment of the American people, the country for which our men have fought will have a more democratic Democracy and a more socialized Society. America will have made one step more toward the realization of the social ideal."
