The Infants' Home, Ashfield, has remained operational through battles with governments, community disapproval, World Wars, Depressions and killer diseases. Overwhelmingly female Boards of Management have provided the organisational skills and the compassion to keep the Home's doors open. From its controversial beginnings as a rescue operation for abandoned children to the multi-faceted organisation of today, The Infant's Home, Ashfield, has been a centre of excellence in the field of child welfare. ---- From the cover.
