Voluntarism--Philosophy & Role

By William Avrunin

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Summer 1968

This piece explores the changing landscape of welfare and health services within the realm of government and voluntary services in terms of their expansion and the need for improved services. The piece acknowledges that as the government begins assuming responsibility for the increase of programs, private agencies are now given room for expansion into areas that may not have been possible before. The piece goes on to examine the differences between programs under voluntary and government auspices noting that in one area citizen participation is more natural in voluntary services than it is in government services. The piece concludes by affirming the importance to concerned laymen and professionals of successful expanded government programs, which in turn can allow limited private agency programs to be more effective in their efforts.
