Need for and Use of Jewish Social Service Agencies: A Report on the Findings of the 1990 National Jewish Population Survey

By J. Alan Winter

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1992

Only a minority of all the households in the 1990 National Jewish Population Survey report seeking assistance for services for a personal or family problem, the needs of the elderly or disabled, or a program for singles. Moreover, only a minority of those who do seek such assistance contact a Jewish agency in hopes of receiving it. The primary reason for not seeking a Jewish agency appears to be lack of any interest or perceived value in doing so. However, of those who do contact a Jewish agency, the great majority receive the service sought and are satisfied with it.
