Abstract

<strong xmlns:lang="en">Public Policy Relevance Statement—This article is a first attempt to describe and conceptualize the under researched practice of material assistance in child protection interventions. The study found that material assistance in child protection settings evokes complex challenges for practitioners and that it is not a technical or bureaucratic practice but rather a relational and social justice oriented one. Therefore, material assistance has the potential to promote social justice in the realms of both redistribution and recognition.
