The Role of the Group Work Agency in Community Planning

By Edward Korn

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

The author discusses the relationship between Jewish Federations, and other centralized planning and fundraising bodies in the Jewish community, and the service agencies which they fund -- especially social group work agencies -- basing his conclusions on the experiences of his agency, the Jewish Community Center of Trenton, NJ. In one case, a Federation-driven understanding of community need drove the community center to develop new programming and build a new building.
