The Great Society and Its Impact on Voluntary Agencies
This piece explores the impact that the Great Society programs of President Lyndon B. Johnson had on Jewish communal service programs, as well as the people who needed them the most. The author asserts that the mere presence of the programs does not assure a "good life," but does suggest different scenarios where the programs can be used effectively. She focuses specifically on the far-reaching impact of the new medical assistance program on the nation's health, showing how states were able to increase services to needy children through better-developed AFDC programs and increased staff and in-service training programs. The author also highlights the importance of working as soon as possible to create new and additional methods to deal with poverty and associated social ills. She author concludes by reaffirming the importance of a having a strong system capable of supporting Americans and the goals of Great Society.
