Symposium on the Casework Agency in the Smaller Community

By Burton S. Rubin, Jacob Little, Aaron Goldstein, Jacob C. Guthartz

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1961

Jewish social service agencies in small communities face particular challenges. For example, Hartford's Jewish Family and Children's Agency is a member of the Jewish Federation, but neither gives to nor receives money from the federation; instead, the Agency receives its funding from the general community chest, whose primary interests lie outside of the Jewish community. This disconnect of interests is harmful both for the Agency and for the Jewish community at large. As well, family agencies in Camden, NJ and Indianapolis, IN must consider whether and how they can provide services for children and the aged that would normally be overseen by other kinds of agency. Often, small family agencies must choose carefully which services they can offer due to small funds and minimal staff.
