Impact of Inter-Agency Cooperation on an Evolving Jewish Communal Agency

By Jerome G. Siskind

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Spring 1965

Due to the limited resources available to Jewish agencies in smaller communities, the best use of those resources is achieved by developing programs that are functionally sound, and through collaborative programs among existing communal agencies. Collaborative programs will allow for "cross-pollenization" between agencies, and through this, increase the availability of services to the community. In the project described in this article, the Jewish Family Service of Wilmington, Delaware, took on the role of professional caseworkers for several other Jewish agencies. The increased availability of caseworkers led to increased requests for services and allowed affiliated agencies to expand their services without the need for increased expenditure of scarce funds.
