The Place of the Functional Agency in Community Planning: Summary of Discussion

By Martin M. Cohn

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1951

The author summarizes conference sessions from the National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare which discussed relations between functional agencies and Jewish communal planning and fundraising bodies such as federations, community chests and welfare funds. Among the common conclusions of these sessions were: that while planning bodies are rightly in charge of planning and fundraising, functional agencies who carry out front-line activities should also have a voice in painting the broader picture; and that funding a variety of professional practices does not mean streamlining these practices, harmonizing them, or removing differences between them.
