Aid was generally expanded during this time. Those who were concerned with "poor charity" being worse than none called for strict oversight and means to limit roles. They also discouraged the growth of relief from public sources. They hoped to limit growth from the public sector. The relief encouraged by the social work profession resulted in an increased in public funding by states and those receiving relief. The number of states providing relief also grew exponentially. There was debate about whether women should be supported to stay at home. This was often viewed as desirable, but funding was not adequate to support this fully.
