Collaboration among Jewish communal service agencies is crucial to serving the community effectively. The Jewish Family Service of Buffalo, NY, for example, is both internally cooperative among its different departments and externally cooperative with other organizations. Such inter-agency cooperation takes place during intake, wherein information may be requested from other agencies, and during service, wherein referrals may be made or organizations may work together on a case. While priorities of different organizations may not be identical, the use of Hillel volunteers to tutor clients of the Jewish Family Service, for example, allows for multiple goals to be met at once. Thus, efforts at collaboration are well worth the personnel and time dedicated to them.
